There is free shipping for order bigger than 25$, I thing I will go for it
For the flash, I will need to find some tutorial on that specific model and then...My learning curve will be for Macro and portrait And probably some LBA aftermath
Oh, heavens, don't pay that much for them!

It looks like the full sets aren't available on Amazon as cheaply as they were when I bought them.

I've found them on eBay for just a tiny amount more than I paid... maybe you can find them locally for an even better price?

Thanks Mike, I will carry on my investigation for a 'best price' (I need to avoid paypal as they charge a lot in Switzerland when using another currency)

That's an excellent price. A tiny bit more than I paid through Amazon last year, but I can't find them that cheap now anyway. So, yes, 17 Euro is a very good price - and a bargain considering the quality (less than 1 Euro per ring - not bad, eh?)

Thanks Awscreo, did You tested it with a ring flash?
Nope, I used it for a larger cpl I have. I think it should hold it no prob, it's machined out of aluminium.

Thanks again, will tell You next week when they arrive (the price was 12.99 Euros + 3.99 for shipping + change currency fee). Yes, under 1 euro per ring and in addition to that, I don't need to buy the specific Sigma adapter rings (the 67 or the 52 are each twice the price I paid for the whole step up/down rings kit). The flash was also a bargain (I hope).
Kind regards.

Thanks, but too late, I just ordered the K&F concept kit.
