I've long wanted the very heavy but seemingly awesome Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX Flash. That's the one I initially wanted in 2004, but my non-photographic husband thought it was just too much money and felt the other one would do. The cheaper model works, but not as well as this sought after beauty.

How are you enjoying it? Your images say, "Very well. Thank you." #9822073
