    Comments about Canon Speedlite Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX Flash:

    I have used my MR-14EX extensively with the 100mm f/2.8L Macro and have been very impressed with the high degree of lighting control I can achieved with this flash unit. Both ETTL and manual settings are smooth and predictable. The left and right flash tube control is a nice feature that enables sculptural modeling of light on the subject. There are only two cons to report, as others have pointed out: the battery hatch is constructed poorly and difficult to open. Also, the control buttons are very small and sunk too deep into the face of the unit making them difficult to depress.

        Comments about Canon Speedlite Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX Flash:

        I purchased this ring flash about 6 months ago. I was very excited to buy it. You can fire a secondary off camera flash to give a better depth to your photos and use it as a great fill flash, or use it "stand alone". Excellent for macro photography as you can adjust the strobes strength independently from each other, or just turn off one side if you wish. Overall, I don't go anywhere without it attached to my camera when shooting macro. If you are on the fence looking to purchase this flash...just do it.
