This is probably the most interesting new product for me.
Two things I'd want from this product:
1. Better diffusion when photographing subjects with reflective type elements, such as the body of a ladybird.
2. This is a lesser want but I find the mark 1 very difficult to store in my camera bag. It's shape is ungainly and awkward.
Can't wait to hear some first impressions!
If you want better diffusion then just pick up the MT-24EX and add diffusers to the heads. In terms of difficulty to store, I do not see any improvement here.
Initially I was excited because I thought this product was using wireless between the flash controller and the head, instead of the ungainly cord. I figured if they added this to the MR-14EX it must be coming soon to my beloved MT-24EX. Sadly this is not the case. I honestly cannot see any improvement in this product over the previous one in terms of my needs.
