I might not have all the point correct, but I read an article on the wavelengths of LED's and the measured values. Basically the bad news is there are peaks and valleys of the light across different wavelengths (blue,red,K value). I forgot who or what site it was, but the person seemed to very knowledgeable. In short do not bet the family farm on LED flash replacing top units from Canon, Nikon, Nissin, Metz, Sigma, . If they get the bugs worked out sure they will sell them, will they be as good as the top ones, who knows.

It's a "hobby" not an obsession. OK it's an addiction sort of.
