Does this eliminate the need for a light meter? If so why wasn't this done a lot sooner.
It can/does do away with light meters, if that jives with your style. The dependance on TTL isn't for everyone, but it does work, and makes run and gun shooting really easy.
I agree the price point is high, but for the brand it is in line with everything they make. The math they were looking to hit was 3x the price of a 600ex-RT, so they hit it, for better or worse. It is the only way to do TTL in a studio sized strobe, so first movers pricing.
