Why the BH-55? I have the BH-40, and it's more than enough for my 5D Mark III, 70-200mm II IS, and a 2x teleconverter.

I think putting 4k in a sub 4,000 camera would cause canon to become its own competition with their cinema line of cameras.They don't want to cannibalize the sales of their expensive cinema cameras.
I now have to take it off camera to make any adjustments to remote or menu settings, once the thing drops a flash you have to go very close to reconnect.I had this problem with my X100S. It goes away if you put the YN-E3-RT into Legacy Mode; this might help with pre-2012 cameras.
Surely they mean mbit? 100mb/s would be 800mbit/s, which is pretty damn fast...... My own connection is only 60mbit/12mbit hehe.I have a 1Gb/s network in my house; GB switches are quite cheap these days.
1) I am talking about having the ST-E3-RT in the camera's hot shoe, controlling the off-camera 600EX-RT flashes, and at the same time the FlexTT5 via the PC port on the same camera controlling the Einstein/MC2. So, exactly like your CyberCommander + Canon scenario, except replace CyberCommander triggering for the Einstein(s) with PocketWizard triggering for the Einstein(s). Any idea if that would work?I just tried it, and I couldn't get it to work.
[1) You list several options, but missing is 'PocketWizard and Canon' - triggering the Einstein(s) with MC2's from a FlexTT5 connected to the camera's PC port. That's one I could do with only the purchase of a cable, do you not list it because it isn't possible (i.e., a PC/miniphone input to the FlexTT5 won't cause it to fire as a 'dumb' transmitter?1) I think you are describing an all-PocketWizard system, identical to my first option but for one difference: in mine, the FLexTT5 is connected to the camera via the hot show, and in yours, it is connected via a PC cord. I think this will work fine.
2) What is this 'Canon lights are set ot optical slave mode' to which you refer? I don't believe Canon Speedlites can be set as optical slaves (without additional hardware for optical triggering, such as the Sonia trigger). Can you explain?
