    Gah! Since upgrading to the Canon 180mm f/3.5 L Macro I need a 72mm adaptor to use the MT24-EX. I now find no-one has stock anywhere in the Uk or HK! Some have had it on back order since April and still not received stock :(

    Anyone know of any little shops around that might have one, at this point price is getting to be irrelevant. I don't want a £600 flash system [or a £1k lense] to be sat idle because of a £30 part :(

    Will be heading out this weekend to try the new macro but will miss the lighting from the MT :(


    Don't you just hate stock shortages, you would think the MT would come with both adaptors too at that price!

    Heh, just sold a 100mm f/2.8 to get the 180mm :)

    Ordered the adaptor, just need to see if they have it in stock. £32 [+ potentially VAT] and it should be here in a week. Odd that their 'super saver' delivery is faster than their 'express' service.

    Oh joy! Ordered from B&H and DigitalRev. B&H had stock and shipped it to me very quickly, cancelled the DR order and heard nothing back until I get a shipping notice from them *sigh*

    Anyone need a Canon ML3 72C?
