"Both directly COMPATIBLE with Canon’s RT radio flash system and the Canon 600EX-RT !!"

Wonder how much they will want?

This might be their most popular product thus far. If the price is right, it will eat away at Canon's sales. If they produce this for the Nikon, even more so.

The YN600EX-RT looks almost identical Canon's product. Doesn't this violate Canon's rights at all?

I'm guessing $225 for the flash.

I wonder if the new controller will be compatible with the 622c's?

Unfortunately I seriously doubt any direct compatibility between the 2 systems. YongNuo's comment -

Quote:
For current YN-622 users, don't be disappointed. we have YN-622N-TX/YN-622C-TX on the way.
YN would not comment about a possible separate receiver unit in future. But now that I think about it, that would at least allow compatibility with current YN-568EX etc.

Its certainly a little bitter-sweet for current 622/568 owners.

Indeed but as a 622 and 568 owner, knowing yongnuo's past, I knew that yongnuo eventually release something better......though I did hope it would be 622 compatible. Still, can't be too pissed about a company that it constantly striving to get better.

Still this bit of news is QUITE impressive!

I'll assume it will have HSS, but heres the million dollar question's.....Whats the listed GN? (be nice to know the real GN as well) and Any battery port?

Yes the site finally opened for me and saw the lack of compatibility. I just ordered the 622c's as well. The 622tx unit looks good though.

I think that can be seen in the image. I think I can pretty safely say there is no way they would release a top end flash without one again

Weird. Wouldn't Canon have the 600 EX-RT protected as a registered trade mark by now?

I always read about the YN offerings, but have never made the jump - but this new announcement has caught my attention!

I currently have 2 Canon 600EX-RT speedlites. I have been wanting to pick up a ST-E3-RT to trigger them but have not been willing to make the purchase because I don't want to lose the AF assist light I have with my current YN622C's. The fact that Yongnuo included AF assist in their version of the transmitter is very welcome news! If this YN-E3-RT is FULLY compatible I will pick it up in a heartbeat. If they did not include things like Group Mode with 5 individually controlled groups I'll be quite disappointed. That would be a deal breaker for me. The same goes for their 600 series flash unit.

I do have to wonder how they are avoiding trademark/patent issues though, since these look like exact copies of Canon's design. I hope they are not because I would really like to expand my 600EX-RT system at a more affordable price point.

Very interesting development. Didn't take YN that long to reverse-engineer Canon's RT system. I like how they actually decided to improve the ST-E3 further with the addition of an AF assist light instead of just directly copying everything over. Would be interesting to see how it performs and whether it's truly fully compatible.

They obviously included the AF assist light... I wonder if their system will also do rear-curtain sync

I know the 622 can do 3 groups so I'm sure this will be able to do at least that. We'll all have to wait for the spec list to know if it can do 5 or not

Again the 622 so I'd be disappointed if this can not.

Remote zoom capability will be nice too. Surprising how it's lacking in Canon's own RT system while third-party solutions like Odin support it.
