Would you guys advice against getting the yongnuo st e3 to save a few bucks? Also, is there a reason why you cant get an st e3 receiver/transceiver?
For me, a key benefit of the Canon -RT system is reliability. Personally, I wouldn't compromise that with a YN transmitter.
There's no receiver because it's really not in Canon's best interest to make something that allows cheap, 3rd party flashes to be added (but I wish they would, to add in monolights).
If my livelihood depended on it I would go Canon all the way. For me at this stage in my photography (I do automotive product photography as a secondary business) I find the YN stuff to be quite good. the three YN flashes and four 622 triggers haven't missed a beat. solid performers on my 5D3. no experience with their YN-E3-RT though -- I'd be careful there as I'm hearing it may have pushed to market too soon. gotta be careful with the reverse engineered stuff.
