    Can't help you at the moment as I'm thinking about the same thing, so interested in what folk have to say.

    I am in two minds though about a ring flash or a ring LED light, though tending towards the LED with adjustable intensity and continuous illumination so more suitable for multi-shot burst when hand held.

      Have a look at Yongnou YN14EX, excellent value and looks just like the Canon version.

        I have the Canon version but as Bill says the Yongnou version is value for money.

                (I've never developed an interest in macro and sold my 100mm L lens earlier in the year)

                  I have the Neewer Macro TTL Ring Flash. Again all I can say is it does everything that you would expect of a ring flash. Cost a penny short of 76.

                    I've seen Martin Parr use one for portraits....gives a distinctive reflection in the eyes.

                      I have been using the Nissin MF18 Ring Flash for a few years now, and it has been both effective, and reliable.
