Any advice on the 60/2.8 macro + stf-8?
2

I'm toying with the idea of ordering the Olympus 60/2.8 macro + stf-8 flash system for doing some outdoor macro shooting, and also for shooting product images for a ceramics studio. They're both on sale right now, so would like to take advantage of the pricing.

The ceramics shooting is typically individual cups, mugs, plates. Following the advice on Nicky Bay's blog posting (https://www.nickybay.com/olympus-stf-8-macro-twin-flash-review/), I intend small flash ball-heads to provide a little more spacing for the product work.

What's the hive mind opinion on this set up? Good for outdoor macro? Am I crazy to think of this for ceramics, too?
