I much prefer the crop on the second one - it seems much better balanced.

Pretty sure it will but want to make sure, will this enable my 7D to use HSS through the RT system with my 600's? Thanks.Yes
I wonder if this lens is really aimed at Nikon users.
I thought DNG was an open source format that happened to be created by Adobe. It would be great to have RAW or DNG as an option in the camera body. I wonder if the manufacturers could introduce a feature that somehow could hoop Adobe's ability to read the file and subsequently import it into LR/Bridge/PS. I would think Canon or Nikon or whoever would be shooting themselves in the foot if they did this.. I wish all the manufacturers would go with DNG natively in camera and get away from the proprietary nonsense.The issue is that Major camera makers may want to add new camera features and do not want innovations limited by what Adobe allows in DNG. Its a philosophy that lets Canon control its own destiny and not be limited by a committee or have to give trade secrets to a committee and lose a competitive advantage. Canon is very secretive.
My workflow was to convert RAW to DNG via the updated stand-alone Adobe DNG Converter and then place the files in their final spot on my hard drive and then go to LR and select Add from the Import panel. It worked great, just an additional step. I also could not tether capture images into LR3 at the time as it did not recognize the 5d3.
I have not looked at the conversion process. However, if lightroom can't read your cr2 files how does the converter read them,correctly. Does the converter get upgraded sooner?
I have a (probably dumb) question. If everytime a new camera comes out and we need a new version of LR to utilize the RAW files, can we convert those files to DNG first and run the DNG file in a previous version of LR?When I first got my 5d3 in March 2012, I was running LR3 which never got support for 5d3 files. I upgraded my computer in Oct 2012 to Win7, 64bit which allowed me to run LR4 which could natively read the 5d3 files. So, for six months, I ingested the CR2 files, used the free convertor and processed my images in LR3.
Is that why the Adobe DNG converter is free?? So you can do that?
I went from LR4 to 5 and have not looked back. LR4 was the first version I tried.
As mentioned above the improvement in "spot" removal was a big improvement.
It would be badass if you could have the benefits of the MC2 built-in to the FlexTT5, but then Speedlite users would complain that they're paying for something they don't need. Kinda like the "I don't need video on an SLR" whiners . At least Pocket Wizard gives you the option of adding on studio light power control to its existing receivers with the MC2. Pretty cool!
Actually, the MC2 is really a dedicated unit. It plugs right into the top of the E640, using the same pin connections as PCB's CyberSync unit.
But the AC9 is an add-on to the regular receiver. The MC2 is a nice deal, in that it's standalone and costs $100, whereas to integrate an AB/WL monolight into the PW system, you need a FlexTT5 and an AC9, which will run about $275. That means for existing PW users, getting an Einstein is cheaper than a B1600, and less than $50 more than a B800.
