Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX

Review Date: Nov 28, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Simple, easy to use, gets the job done everytime.
Cons:
Fixed position of the flashtubes.

No complaints here. We have two of these and we use them daily for intra oral photography at my practice with both the EF 100 f2.8 macro and the EF 50 f2.5 compact macro. We've probably fired these flashes 20000+ times in the past two years, and still going strong.

 
Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM

Review Date: Nov 28, 2004 Recommend? no | Price paid: $420.00 | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Fast focusing, USM. Of course what lens at this focal length doesn't focus quickly?
Cons:
Very soft, average contrast, color rendition a little on the cool side. Not worth the price. Worth the price at half what this beast sells for.

I'm a little disappointed with this lens. Not at all up to the standard of other Canon EF lenses I have had in the past, including some really inexpensive consumer level zooms. I would feel guilty selling this to someone at any price.
