Title: 86mm diameter macro flash
Post by: Jopa on September 05, 2017, 03:35:39 AM
I'd like to start shooting macro again and purchase an EF version of the Sigma 180mm APO macro. Last time I used an A-mount version on my Sony A99 (both are sold a while ago :) ).  I remember I couldn't find a macro flash for the Sigma due to the large filter thread diameter (86mm), and I'm wondering if things have changed since 2013?

I use step-down rings for my sigma 150mm when using the MT-24 or MR-14, vignetting isn't an issue when shooting at F11 or narrower.
I've also had good results with a 270EX II velcro'd to the lenshood using a flash extender cable.

I think that's an AWESOME idea - you should patent it :) Going to try it myself with a wireless trigger. I have 2 x 600EX, but those are quite bulky, so most likely will buy some small inexpensive Chinese units and tape them to the hood. Thank you!
