Finally adapted ...
For the longest time, I have been wanting to support the ring flashes I have on something larger than that darn ø55mm filter ring.
It is the most annoying thing to have a 180mm f/3.5 1:1 MACRO lens, and not be able to use the ring light (HVL-RLAM) or the common third-party ring flash, because SONY and whomever decided they wanted people at 180mm using their more expensive flash systems. Well, to that, as always ... I say "NO!"
I am not breaking out another $600 for something I already own!
So ... without further adieu ... here's the "adapted" TAMRON SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD 1:1 MACRO and the SONY HVL-RLAM, securely married together with $40 worth of step-down rings.
A MACRO MAKIN' MACHINE!
Can you imagine the "one-gun" salute I am sporting to the manufacturers, now? If you won't make an adapter for your device, I will!
What's that hot shoe attachment? It must be part of the ring flash, not familiar with it. Sony needs a ring light.
I was thinking of making something like this:
