first impressions: Yongnuo 560 III with RF603 II and Panasonic GX7

This is my very first foray into off-camera lighting - just spent my first 30 minutes with my new Yongnuo 560 III (two of them) and RF 603 II trigger set. Couple initial observations:

The manuals are really miserable to try to understand - and I'm a flash newbie - but the flashes worked great with almost zero setup. I only had to push one button on the flashes to switch them to the wireless mode. Then they worked. So that's pretty remarkable.

Super easy to change power settings on the flashes.

Transceiver fit on the GX7 shoe mount with no problem. It does block the viewfinder from being raised.

Simply turned on the GX7, made sure flash was "on" in the menus, and I don't think I had to change anything else on the camera.

It seemed to work fine up to 1/320, and even sometimes at 1/400. I was very glad to see that it goes well beyond 1/160.

So far, so good!!
