Yes, indeed. Very valid concerns, especially as we already know from day dot that these Godox kits are going to be upgraded pretty soon (at the very least with an option to control HSS from the camera position, and possibly a new combined triggering unit; with possible changes to the main hardware to follow to incorporate TTL flash feet so at least the AF Assist Lamp works automatically). So with that in mind, yeah, resale value is of concern.

- Possible new combined trigger with HSS switching

- Possible new flash models to include remote HSS switching, a new TTL foot for focus assist (which will still provide a Manual on camera flash - anybody use that ever?).

- Possible changes to the main hardware.

Will these upgrades be available for existing models - at what charge - or will they be free?

After adding TTL feet to make the focus assist work, and when they get around to adding TTL to them in 5 years time - they'll be hailed as the best thing since... Quantums 10 years ago.

'Cheap' sure has an ability to hide the cracks.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
