Re: LumoPro LP180 flash is released. Exciting?

Well, the price looks nice, apparently $199, but other than that there isn't much that excites me. It's not much more powerful than an SB-900, you lose TTL, and I don't see how it would work completely with manufacturer-specific flash triggers like the PocketWizard Mini/Flex system.

I was hoping for a clear 1+ stop improvement in power plus a way to control flash power from the camera.

Why not just get Einsteins instead of this? Increased portability and lower price, but you lose power control from the camera and 3 stops?
