promaster makes a nice one too for 50 dollars...I'm not sure how much the Canon will run you. Ladybug picture is great, I like the POV. shot w/ the Tamron: Runs around 50-60 EUR I think so not really much. The drawback is that the one from Canon only allows to remote trigger one flash which is sometimes not enough to get a satisfying illumination. Your pictures always have brilliant contrast and colors. Mind to share with which tool and settings you develop the RAWs?
