mermaidkiller: Exactly the same as the Canon 24-105 f/4L.
So what does this lens add ?

New Canon equivalents are ~$700-800 now. Like mermaidkiller asks, what does this lens add? Especially if this lens is priced more than the Canon.

My goodness. Can't please a darn soul, can we?

Gripe and complain. I'll just shoot with my 7d and T3i

Nicely done. Something similar has been done at this link. I know it's with continuous lights, but you get the idea.

Silverwind: Ok, so I just gotta ask . . . and I know technology advances . . . but . . .

If you have 580II (maybe two or more) and PW, Stratos, Odins or whatever to trigger them, would you dump what you have to buy these new units??

'cause it looks like you would have to buy this flash and the STE3 together for them to work.

On another note, why didn't Canon make some sorta receiver with the STE3 to be backward compatible with older units? I mean if 3rd Party units can do it, and do it well, couldn't the maker make one as well??

Just sayin'

I did read that, but like you state - it's infra red line of sight. So why would I spend $600 for a unit that does what another 580II already does??

Now If I had the money to buy the ST-E3 and maybe two units, I would. But that close to 2 grand!! Ouch!!

I really hope that Canon makes some Radio ETTL receivers that you could use with the ST-E3 RT. That would make a little bit of sense so those who already have equipment can make use of the newer RT technology. Otherwise, they'll be losing some sales to 3rd Party (Like PW, Pixel King, Phottix) who have already done this.

A pass through hotshoe on the ST-E3 would have made sense. My third party Stratos trigger has that and it cost less than $100. Don't the PW Flexes have it??

Wow. Loved reading these comments. I do have to say for this price, this flash better cook my food when fired.

This flash is almost twice the price of the 580II when introduced!

Oh well, Phottix Odin looks like the only viable option for me.
