    I've got the DCR250 and Sony Ring lite for my F828. Sometimes stack on the HOYA Macro filter.

    If you're in the Siglap area, buzz me.
    Let you try the Dcr250 and Ring lite for a cuppa of Kopi C.

    the 6T is the commonly recommended quality close up lens lah. the oly is rarer and more expensive, but supposedly not bad. i checked a few shops lately, but haven't seen any leh.

    er... park your car, walk out and ask the hospital staff? it's inside the hospital grounds lah, nearer the alexandra road side. i take bus there one, so a bit hard to explain. walk in from the bus-stop it's there already.

    why suddenly so interested in bugs ah?

    I think I noe your problem. Stack the Macro flash infront of the Ring flash.
    Does the ring flash have any front threads?
