Couldn't wait, and tried it out just now, right before sunset. Pics were taken using MF, never altered after taking the shot without the ring light on. None of the pictures were PP'd, just converted from RAW to JPEG via Photoshop.

Definitely makes a big difference in shutter speed. lol. The 6000k color temp kind of bugs me though.

I just switched to the ugly 3 AAA holder and have to use the OEM camping light push button switch. Now I can't throw the battery holder into my pocket like I did with the 4 AAA holder. Not as bright now either, but the LEDs don't get hot anymore. Figured it's safer for everything.

I use a ring flash on a Canon 100m, I find that really helps :)
