Re: Flash and Macro lens

You may get additional useful information by also asking this question in the Macro and Still Life Photography forum and/or the Sony Alpha Full Frame E-mount Talk forum.

There are many and varied options. For example, for insects etc I find hot shoe mounted flash fine and I don't use a macro lens but for flowers etc I use natural light and I do use a macro lens, and although I have a full frame camera I don't use it for insects or flowers. I'm not suggesting that any of these options would be appropriate for you, just that there are a lot of options that you may want to find out about before deciding what to purchase next. To some extent for example it depends on what sort of subject matter and what sort of magnification you have in mind.

As to flash arrangements, you might want to skim through this thread or this much larger thread and/or similar ones for useful ideas.
