    The SU-800 Commander for the R1C1 does have the ability to control the SB-R200 flashes in M mode so it should work, although I have not personally tried.

    The R1C1 does come with a 72mm adapter ring which would fit on your 120 S lens. The smallest adapter ring in the kit is 52mm, which is still too large for your 90mm Macro-Elmar (39mm). My other concern would be putting something that large on the front of the 90mm, which is a collapsible design. On the other side, the largest ring is 77mm, so you wouldn't be able to mount the R1C1 on the 70 or 35.

    Hi There
    I happen to have both and have tried. Doesn't seem to be working: can't get the flashes to fire. Neither in manual nor in TTL mode. Anything I'm missing?
    Cheers

    I confirm what IceMan has found. I cannot get this same combination to fire.

    I'm not surprised. The SU800 is a data transmission tool for iTTL, not just a simple IR-trigger. It probably needs some processing power or data input from the camera to work, even in manual mode.
