I disagree I find the images sharper using second curtain as the sharp image is exposed over the top of any movement blur not the other way aroundno remote second curtain sync is a deal breaker for me
here are some examples
Every single one of those "examples" would look exactly the same with first curtain sync, you are just dragging the shutter, it doesn't make any difference if the flash fires at the beginning or end of the exposure for that type of image.
personally i use phottix odins
they are not the cheapest but they are the best
the transmitter unit has a really nice large intuitive display screen on the back which lets you control all your flash functionallity and groups etc
they also allow high speed sync with studio strobes this is an undocumented feature but still pretty cool
one cool thing with this is you dont need the expensive odin recievers on the studio light you can just use a much cheaper stratto 2!
then you can mix speedlights and studio lights and do pretty much whatever you like and control the speedlights from the back of the transmitter, the studio lights you cant control as they are hooked up with the 3.5mm audio jack
Phottix also allows 2nd curtain sync off camera, which the Canon 600's cannot. Can someone explain how a 3rd party company can make a flash that can do that on a Canon camera, but Canon can't? ??

The wait for the non-IS version was interminable...this one should keep the rumor-mill going for years.
At least it gives people a chance to negotiate a bank loan for the no doubt high $$ asking price.
IS would always be nice, but I couldn't be happier with my 24-70 f/2.8II.
