The new 90EX (for the EOS-M) is pretty interesting. The specs show it as having an AF assist beam and master capabilities. It should be compatible with the later EOS dSLR menus... Canon may have inadvertently just produced the ST-E2 replacement for those of us that can't (won't) justify the expense of the radio ST-E3 and 600RT.

This could be a nice, lightweight fill light/master for those of us still using the old IR based wireless system.

Does anyone have more info on the 90EX?

The AF assist on the 90EX is the same annoying multiple bursts as the popup flash. And the assist doesn't work when using the flash as a master.

Does the 90's head swivel/move at all? I've not seen any info saying it does

if it does not even point up for bounce...
:confused:

Well, that sucks. :( Still might make a decent little master/fill light though.

A 90EX would require full power to properly expose a subject at 10.5 feet away using f/2.8 and ISO 100. I don't know what the zoom capabilities of this flash are though. Pretty weak... something like 4.5 stops weaker than a 430EX. If it does indeed have master ability, it might not be so bad. But keep in mind that a flash this weak is not going to be a very good master flash (for outdoors especially).
