What would be the advantages / disadvantages replacing my 430 EXII & 580 EXII with 2 of them on my Canon 6D ?
Is everything manual ?

No, everything is available, manual, ETTL, 2nd curtain and HSS, all using wireless radio without additional triggers.

They seem to be back in stock at a few dealers on Ebay now.

Benefits include
- having everything built in - no need for extra external triggers and their batteries and you cant forget your triggers!
- having an on camera ttl flash actually in the hot shoe of the camera, while still triggering external flashes.

Disadvantages include:
- rather a closed system, and awkward to add another non Canon RT potocol light - lianggc please develop a dedicated dumb receiver with pc/3.5 output for Canon protocols.

So in general, for me it's interesting to sell my 430 EXII & 580 EXII + my new bought Jongnuo YN-622C-TX + 2x YN-622C triggerset
to get rid of the 2 receivers (and no extra battery's needed without them) + batterylevel meters visible on the Jognuo's + guidance meter 60m further than my 430 & 580 EXII, all advantages. Recycle time is probably also better ?

So there are 2 common possibilities (for those who use 2 flashes maximum) :
-1x Jognuo 600EX-RT ON CAMERA communicates wireless with a second one OFF CAMERA without transmitter (which most of us won't use, a flash on camera :) )
-1x YN-E3-RT transmitter to command 2 Jognuo 600EX-RT 's OFF CAMERA with the possibility to adjust flash power of both flashes on the YN-E3-RT transmitter, right ?

Can something be set up (adjusting flash power for example) also in the Canon 6D menu or isn't it compatible cause these are Jognuo's and no Canon's?
Maybe in future the camera will be able to be the transmitter and no extra transmitter in the hotshoe necessary anymore? :)

Yes, although wedding photographers may like to have an on-camera flash in the mix for first dance.

The 6d menu would work, but it's probably slower than using the 600's menu (I've not used either, but I'm guessing based on previous systems)

Whilst the 6d could possibly have an in-built wireless controller, the 5, 7, or 1 series couldn't because of the metal construction (they can't have wifi either for the same reason). It's entirely possible to do though for the rest of the range.
