<<<Still using a T32?

Yes, quite compact for macro and can aim down.  I asked John about the 
electronics and they are similar to the T28 and are quite snappy about sending 
a quench signal.  Problem is the flash power.  I use a 2 or 3 stop ND filter 
and it works like a charm.
Problem is the auto mode sensor doesn't always "see" what you are shooting and 
light lost to extension etc.   Fill flash I think is quite forgiving though.  
In shade it is MAGIC with flutterbys. I can spot pulled up shadows on them a 
mile away in 
most circumstances if they were shot in deep shade.  My theory is the 
structural colors just don't pop w/o some direct light.  I could have used 
another stop of fill light in my shot.  A fancier TTL macro light might be a 
better solution but the T28 is easy and light.  

Thanks for looking and commenting.  

Still a Monarch fan despite always seeking Bronze Coppers,  Mike
