96 images - but not one that shows the potential of that Sync speed! And nothing yet in the shooting experience either . . . .

Hello!

Syncing @ 1/2000th - off camera flash in bright but underexposed ambient - the pics. Pretty please . . .

ScratchDisk: When it's tested, would DPreview include a serious appraisal of the flash sync capabilities of this cam, please.
With longer reach & a better max aperture, a high sync speed would be a revelation.
Please don't simply regurgitate what Canon specifies. Please test with an recent Ex Canon Speedlite, but also, critically, with a single pin option to reveal what it can really do.
TIA

Hi, That's very impressive news - Tx!
As you say, getting max light energy at 1/1 M at high shutter speeds is unusual & very welcome.
Usually M flash from a 580ExII in a Canon body hot-shoe does not equate to a single pin option but your info has already exceeded my expectations - Tx. 1/3200th is an extremely good start.
