    I got a d50 and may be moving onto a d80 pretty soon. I also got a 105mm Nikkor micro lens, so I noticed nikon released their version of a close up flash.

    Just wondering if anyone has heard of anything good or bad about this flash?

    its fucking expensive, but if you like macro, then I guess its worth it

    edit, meant to say worth it, not worthless

    I have used it quite a bot... great for macro.. If you shoot alot of macro its well worth it. fully positionable around the lens and you can ratchet then to the point they almost point at each other as well....
