    Setup is working really well. Do you use extra diffusion on the ringflash?

    Very nice shots, Looks like this jumper was camera shy lol.
    I was going to point that out about your sensor, 2nd shot shows it well.
    I wish Nikon done a lens like this.

    Thanks. I didn't use any diffusion. This may have worked because the day was so bright. Trouble with ring flashes is the awful reflection you get in spiders eyes or shiney subjects. I dropped my speed light on the first day of having this lense,and although it still works i can't see the display any more. Grrr.

    Ooops, didn't edit those out very well :(

    Congrats on getting the MPE .... wouldn't recommend the ring light at all though especially not diffused, if I recall correctly anything over 3x and the light power struggled with the yongnuo!

    But as things go these are great first attempts and you'll soon get used to it...

    Thanks Bryn. I didn't get a congrats from the wife though, all i got was a :mad:.....Totally agree about the ring flash. After breaking my speed light on the first day i had to try something..but the good news is that it's put me in the market for that Yongnuo twin flash thingy :) Just got to convince her indoors..:eek:

    Mine works at 5x, the only problem I have had (apart from diffusion) is that it had a problem with not shutting after one year, which I have fixed with velcro (it was a bit tricky).
    I know a lot of photographers don't like ring flashes but there are some great ones who use them.
