Sunpak GX8R

I have the opportunity to pick up a Sunpak GX8R Ring Flash for a bargain price. Brand new, never used. I know this is a little old now but is it worth a punt on my Pentax K-r probably with my Tamron 90mm Macro. I'll be using it for flowers, insects and anything else small enough to be interesting.

Can anyone recommend this Ring Flash or give any advice on using one, or recommend another for under $100.

Thanks

It's pretty well-regarded here. I picked a used one up for about that much money a few weeks ago, but have not yet had the chance to play with it. Hopefully these next few weeks I can do so.

Thanks Terry, this one is about $35, sorry mate including extortionate postage. I think I'll grab it.

What do you mean, again? I have 2 Manual flashes and only 1 PTTL flash I use manual more than PTTL even on the one with it.
