Well, if you have to have a ring flash the AF 160FC is it as far as I'm concerned. It's just really made for the D FA 100 (or 50 for that matter). I have one and I love it. A more fundmental question is - if you haven't done any macro photography why do you think you need a ring flash?

I'd strongly suggest that you do some macro shooting with your D FA 100 in natural light and also play with any tele-macro lenses you may have long before you get a ring flash of any make. You can do a LOT of macro shooting with out a ring flash.
