B&H sells adapters for 58 mm, 67 and 72. I need one to adapt
to my Canon 24-105 mm L lens. Any ideas?

Cheapy 77mm to 72mm step down adapter + 72mm macrolite adapter?

Won't a step down adapter vignette the lens ?

I'd expect quite a bit of vignetting since the flash adapter itself is 52mm. You might find it better to go with off lens mounting the heads.

What specific off-lens mounting head (s) would you recommend?
B&H has so many I'm lost. Thanks to everyone for helping.
Would be using my Canon 5D3 and the 24-105 L.

Depends on your budget. I'm using a combination of RRS brackets which can easily exceed the price of the flash. Since this is geared for macro you might want to pose a question in the "Macro World" forum. My setup is a 1d4 and 180 macro and although the step ring didn't cause this lens a problem (72mm) I believe stacking the 77-72,72-58 could. I also found the default mount somewhat limiting for proper placement of the strobe heads.
