I have recently purchased the Macro Flash System kit that included both these flash systems together. It came with a case that can hold both flash systems and the Controller.

Pros: The TF-22 is extremely versatile. So far this is my favorite of the 2 guns. The RF-11 hasn\'t been used much so far because of this.The TF-22 heads can be individually positioned to get a variety of lighting set-ups.

With the diffuser panels attached the lighting is not too harsh and flash like.

Lighting can be adjusted to vary between the twin heads from balanced to full power to either head. Very easy and fexible. This is a fantastic system for macro work.


Cons: you need to buy the FR-1 Flash Adaptor Ring to be able to use the guns with the 50mm F2 Macro, and I believe the same is true for the new 35mm F3.5 Macro, and personally I think this should be included with the guns. The most obvious pairing of these flashes must be with a macro lens and yet out of the box you cannot use them with one.

With the Controller in the camera hotshoe, on the E-300, you cannot use the VA-1 Varimagni Finder. For complete a macro system this is a bit of an oversight. A solution to this is to use the FP-1 Flash bounce grip. This works very well and comfortable to hold but is heavy and does make the whole system a bit obvious in public:dry:

Price Paid: it was a display model and cost £570.00 for the kit.
