The 72C Macrolite Adapter is first rate. It is metal and light weight. It does the job just like it is supposed to.

Fits the EF 180mm L macro lens and allows the smaller MR-14EX to attach to the front with no noticeable vignetting.

This adapter works perfectly for its intended use. The only problem is price. It's way too expensive but you can't use the flash without it. Canon should provide at least one adapter with each flash, preferably in the size of the customer's choice.

Would have given it 5 stars if it weren't so overpriced. Necessary for using the Canon 180mm f3.5 macro lens with the Canon ring light flash. So bite the bullet if you need one of these adapters.

If this adapter is on a lens, can I then put a 58mm lens cap on it?
Asked by: Ed
Well my answer is a NO. The lens cap does not fit onto the adapter at all! But what I do is I leave the MR-14Ex Canon ring flash on my lens with the adapter obviously on and then the lens cap does fit onto the end of the ring flash but will only stay on safely if you have the lens cap with the Canon writing horizontal. Hope that helps.
