    Canon 600 EX-RT

    Does anyone have an idea when the supply of the 600 EX RT flash will catch up.
    Been on order for weeks.

    Thanks

    From where? I ordered one from Amazon a couple of weeks ago, and I had it a week later (and it only took that long because I opted for free shipping).

    AMAZON estimates delivery in 1-3 months until they can fill the order.
    Estimated delivery date May 15-June 15.

    So do they live up to the expectation?
    Will I really have the off camera abilities that I was never able to get really functional with other triggers?
    (guess I ordered from amazon and not the other retailers)

    I don't know of any remote triggers that provide up to 5 separate control groups.

    Personally, though, I got it mainly for the AF assist coverage compatible with the 1D X (the 580 isn't quite wide enough for the outer points, and all I had previously were 430's). I'll most likely use it mainly on-camera, as my remote triggering usually blends Speedlites and a monolight. If Canon releases a standalone RF receiver for their system to trigger older flashes and with a PC connection to trigger a monolight, I might consider switching from PocketWizards to the Canon system.
