Really, so you're getting 1/400 before it starts pulsing? Good to know. I have a couple of friends with Canons and PW TTLs but they don't mess around with HSS that much.

I've been using mine almost exclusively with a Quadra S head. Sunday I got some wonderful 1/2500 of a second for fill, so I could shoot at F2. I did so so at higher speeds at full power shooting into the sun.

Yes. The 5D MKIIs are pretty pedestrian on on sync speed. My 7D (which is going up for sale soon) has a 1/250th sync speed and I've pushed it to 3x or 1/750th.

I'm also parting with an AB1600 and plan to get a second Einstein 640 in it's place. I wan't sure the Pocket Wizard PowerMC2 would show back up in the market after the recent snag but B&H took an order today and showed it as in stock.
