I'm looking at the Fotodiox Pro 48" Octagon Softbox through ebay with the ab speedring. Wondering if anyone has used one? Also comes with a bag so I assume it's collapsable?

the bag doesn't mean it's collapsable; i'm taking collapsable to mean no tear down or disassembly. the bag could simply be to store the parts once disassembled. Got a link?

That's a tear down, not a collapsible.

I recently bought this 47" from OEC Camera after several recommendations and reading a good review. http://cgi.ebay.com …ain_0?hash=item​56393f3e60 (external link)

I will have to say I am very impressed with the quality of the unit. Not to say anything against the one you are looking at, it looks good. Just letting you know that the OEC Camera ones are really nice.

I've always been impressed with my AB 48" octo. Its foldable (although any foldable octo is still a little bit of a hassle) and it has a really nice build quality. And certainly, with price comparing them to any other pro brand of octos, you're getting a steal in price.
