"will nikon 85mm 1.4 lens fit into an Orbis ring light?"
Tue 29-Jan-13 05:40 AM by jrp


been looking at the Orbis ring light, seems the diameter of the lens hole on the Orbis is almost exactly the same as the diameter of my 85mm f1.4.

Does anyone have any experience w this?

Thx
Gary

I just tried it; it's not that close. WIth the 85mm through the Orbis, there's still 3/16" clearance all around.
