i dont think so that was the major complaint with it they are dirt cheap though and if used in manual with some poverty wizards can get some great results for not alot of money for people starting out with strobeIf you don't need TTL then the YN560 (different from the 565 mentioned above) is an amazing choice for about $70. They are serious workhorses with pretty much everything you need (unless you need TTL, of course), and pretty much the only thing I can fault them on is long recharge at full power. At anything below full power it's a non-issue. Very comparable to a 430EX II in what you can do with it, for about 1/3 the price.
Does the YN560 support eTTL2 and being a wireless slave from the on board controllers?
Yeah, the 1DX is a perfect wedding camera - covers all the bases, not jst a few.
Yeah, especially that it's big enough that you can defend yourself from bridezilla with it if things get out of hand :-)

I've been lurking these forums for months. But I registered just now to tell the OP that he sounds ridiculous.
Seriously. I'm a former Nikon shooter (that still prefers a number of things about Nikons) and you
sound like an impatient, petulant child.
First of all, there isn't a professional on this planet that actually thinks the 24-70 needs IS. In fact,
it's easy to sort out the professionals from amateurs based solely on how they feel about there being
no IS on the 24-70. It's a simple test actually. Do you think that the new lens is overpriced because
it has no IS? Congratulations, you're an amateur/hobbyist photographer. Nothing wrong with that, let's
just not confuse terms here.
If you want a barely useful (let alone necessary) gimmick like IS on wide focal lengths, then go buy the
24-105 for less than half the price. A 24-70 focal range lens, especially on a full frame where most
pros will use it, renders IS almost completely useless. Just about every situation (very few) in which IS would
be useful can be covered using proper technique and/or a 100 dollar monopod. Longer focal lengths, sure, IS
makes sense, and is quite useful. But you cannot look at the MTF chart of the newest 24-70, which looks like it
might even blow away some primes in its focal range, and go "oh that's overpriced". It shows your ignorance.
It's a professional lens. A professional tool. The added durability and sealing alone make it worth it for a pro,
they make it back with one or two photo shoots.
And come on. Complaining about Canon not having an answer for the D800? It's been out for like
72 hours. Really? I mean, really? Now you're going to whine like the kid who's upset that the
neighbor boy got a new hot wheels toy and you have to wait 'til Christmas? Come on. Ridiculous.
Settle down. Obviously Canon is releasing something soon. Wait to see what the specs are.
And stop worrying about unimportant things like IS on a wide angle, and huge megapixels on a 35mm.
If they want my $$ they had better listen. I want the 40+ MP, 16Bit, without the AA filter just like the D800E. 1FPS and 800 ISO will do. Not over $6000.00. I'm close to jumping to MF anyway.
And while you are at it I'd like the moon on a stick to suck on while I sit on my solid gold toilet...
I think the glass was made from recycled Coke bottles....
