Wish they were not so large... but oh well. They are indeed really nice.

Canon has announced the 430ex-RT, and they will be even a bit smaller than the current 430ex. They would be available in september.

N2.
Did you get the ST-E3RT transmitter as well?
The Canon 600 EX-RT multiply real fast. Turn your back and there is another one just like that.
Enjoy the new toys.

Also when the 430 was first announced it said they could only be used as slaves in RT mode. Canon corrected it and stated it can be used as a master in RT mode. That is good news for anyone that needs to trigger other flashes at a venue and still needs the AF assist beam. You can get the YN transmitter for AF assist but I still like to bounce the one on the camera as well. 430 is lighter and smaller.

mine haven't been - and they sit next to each other in the camera bag.

maybe i should play some Marvin Gaye to my camera bag - i could really use a few more speedlites.

do they start out as 600's or are they born as 430's and grow into 600's ?

all kidding aside - the 600EX and ST-E3 has changed the way i shoot - a brilliant system
if only i could use it (in manual only of course) on cameras other than Canon (like my X100 or Leica)

Its the only way i shoot too - but it doesnt work with Non-Canon cameras

I would love to be able to shoot with my 1DX - then take the STE3 off and use it on my Leica or Fuji.

Unless you have found a way to do it ?
It has never worked for me when i tried

No problem but you must not have remembered this similar information when you asked this as a question and was responded to in a post by dmward in another thread. I thought I would refresh your memory and link that additional info from Flash Havoc.
