I had exactly the same reaction, but assumed it was just me until I saw your comment.aster wrote:What bothered me is the ring flash's reflection that's fully visible on the pupil of your eyes. Maybe it's just me but it really can't be ignored by my brain whatever I try to not see it there...

I built mine up this afternoon around the a700 w/VG and an F56 flash gun. The a700 w/VG is about 3 5/8" between the lens axis and tripod mount, or about 1/4" too high above the limit for the adaptable camera mounting bracket (which is sold separately, BTW). I'd recommend fitting the kit to a body without the VG if this 1/4" would bother you, but you should know that it's not the most imprecise part of this project. The F56 is a very snug fit, too, though if you have difficulty fitting your flash gun, you can always snip the corners of the cheapo adapter. I recommend wrapping the metal adapter bracket with tape where it makes contact with your flash gun and camera. Pictures will come later.
