Any reason not to buy a YN600EX-RT over a YN568EX-II?

I'm currently invested in two YN622C transceivers and a YN622C-TX and have a YN468EX-II speedlight to work with them. I will be buying another flash shortly and I'm looking at the two flashes mentioned in the title. My understanding is that both work the same with the 622C trigger system. Currently it looks like the YN600EX is $20 higher than the 568EXII and besides the radio aspect of it the 600EX also has an auxiliary power port. I don't anticipate moving to the full 600EX system anytime soon.

So, I'm thinking the best option is to spend the additional $20 and go with the 600EX...a pinch of more power(?), auxiliary power option, and the possibility to move to an integrated radio system later on if I so desire.

Any reason, considering my current equipment inventory, that I shouldn't go ahead with the YN600EX-RT?

Thanks,
Ed

EDITED: I messed up and called the 622C pieces "600C" pieces...have noted the edit in RED.

Do you mean you have the YN-622s?

The YN600EX (at Amazon) is listed as being compatible with Yongnuo's YN-E3-RT radio system. I don't know what that means for the YN600EX flash and the YN622s. If you find that they're not compatible, you might look at the YN568EX II.

Thanks Aaron, you made me look back at my post and in error I had called my 622C system a "600C" system. I'm very sorry for the confusion. So yes, I meant that i have the 622s.

Just thought I'd mention that I pushed the button on the YN600EX-RT.

I have some YN 568 EX II flashes, but I am switching to the Godox V860c. I've been using it for about 6 months now and absolutely love it! It has a Li-ion battery that makes a huge difference. It works well with the YN 622 triggers. The Godox is more expensive the the YN 600, but it's worth the money..

Here's a review of the Godox: http://flashhavoc.com ...c-ving-ettl-flash-review/ (external link)

My understanding is that Neewer TT860 is exactly the Godox but less expensive.

Just curious, why isn't the Aperlite YH-700C being considered here? I am looking for a new flash, since I found leaky batteries in my Sigma EX500 and no matter how well I think I cleaned it out, it won't operate.

I haven't looked for flashes in years and now find there are great alternatives to the overpriced Canon flashes.
