O-Flash Technical Question.

I just ordered one off eBay. The 160 seems like the right one for a T1i and 550EX combination. It took some searching to find one that was being shipped from the US.

I got an unexpected bonus check from my employer, so now I'm on the prowl for the Canon EF 100mm F2.8 L IS USM

Anyway, on the pic below, how do they arrive at 61 - 75 inches from lens center to flash tube(?) center? There are multiple variations on this chart from other sellers, so I don't think it is a typo. I know this thing is big, but it ain't no 5 or 6 feet.

Thanks
Mikey...

I believe the numbers should read 6.1-inches to 7.5-inches.

I'll buy that. then use mm instead of cm for the metric side and it suddenly makes sense. Thanks.

The model numbers are the dimension in millimeters between the center of lens and center of flash tube.
