Also thanks for testing it with a large lens. It wouldn't be a deal breaker for me if my 300 did block the AF assist(BTW the hood is just under 150mm(5.75") and is about 430mm(17") long with 2x TC) but I do like to set up speedlites near the feeders in the evening so the AF assist would only help for song birds as I prefer to shoot the hummers in flight(Ai-servo).
I'm not sure that I get how this supports groups any different for pre-2012 bodies from your review. You did it the same way on the XSi as I do it with my 1DIV and ST-E3-RT, except for my this combo it doesn't reset anything if I go into the in camera flash menu. I do remember reading that the YN was going to allow 5 groups instead just 3 is that all there is, or is something else?
Anyway I'm going to order one, wish I had it last night as AF-assist would have been helpful.
It supports all the Gr features that are available in the 600EX-RT menu. So, A through E, each group can be set for ETTL, Auto, Manual, or turned off. Each group is indecently controlled for power or FEC if ETTL. Way past anything that the Canon optical system can offer.
