The 600EX RT can control 5 groups and if we use it with 580EXII on the optical ETTL mode then can use up to 3 or 5 groups?

This new flash is very the interesting........ but wonder how much would it cost when in SG???? $800 each????

But normally, you need 2-3 and getting 2-3 is not gonna be cheap....... Wonder if they will have a mid range version in future??? Like 430EX-RT or something..........:sweat:

U will need at least 2 ,1 master & 1 slave as no bodies including the latest 5Dmk3 or 1DX has radio trigger build in, or get the ST-E3 RT. The min set up would be 1-600EX RT + 1 - ST E3 RT to go into this new flash system.
