Has anyone else got hold of one of these lenses yet?

I have tried a couple of macro shots with the on camera flash, but the light seems a little harsh. Has anyone used this lens with the Canon 580 or the Sigma 500 flash guns?

Here is a sample with the on camera flash.

If so, willthe 7 degrees of down tilt allow the flash gun to illuminatea subject just 4 inches away from the lens?

If not would a small softbox spread the light enough?

I have added a sample using the on camera flash, to the sample images, if anyone wants to see what it looks like.

Please let me know if it works, before I go out and buy one.
