Some advice on speedlights need please - Nissin/Canon/Yongnuo


I will be buying a 5D3 soon, if not a 5D2. I currently have a Nissin Di622 mkii, which I am really happy with. I use a Cactus wireless trigger system, which is pretty good for the price als.

I am after a 2nd flash and I am wondering if I should

add a Nissin D186 mk ii, or should I look at the new Canon 600EX, or should I as a 3rd option go for a Yongnuo? I have some product shots upcoming, and would like to learn more about portrait lighting also.

What benefits would the Nissin if I paired a 622 and a 866?

What would the Canon 600EX on a 5D3 do that a Nissin 866 couldn't?
