Here is another sample shot. The first image has the doughnut shaped catchlights. The second image has the center of the doughnuts filled-in so they appear as circular catchlights which look more appealing to me...although they are still large and somewhat obtrusive. I'm sure I can shrink them a bit in PS to a more reasonable size. This was with an 85mm lens at fairly close range (about 4ft).
A couple of notes on using the Roundflash: the Velcro strap that wraps around the flash head would be easier to deal with it fastened on the top of the flash instead of under it. It's kind of tight trying to get my hand under the flash head to fasten the strap. Also, manual focus lenses are pretty much out of the question. An 85/1.4 lens is a pretty tight fit through the bungee cords but once it's on, it feels pretty good. I haven't tried it with "smaller" lenses yet. I like to keep the lens shade on the 85mm for protection but it needs to come off in order to get the Roundflash onto the lens. Overall, the whole assembly with D700, 85/1,4 and Roundflash is cumbersome and awkward to use. The light is nice and soft and pleasing but at the price of convenience and bulk. The unit is well made and designed and the magnetic latches for the supports work nicely. So, overall, I have mixed feelings...good results at the expense of usability. But it does make for a great source of portable, soft light when stands/reflectors/larger modifiers are not an option.
