Is white balance tricky underwater? Does it have a WB setting for that?

I found this Nikon Rumors thread kind of interesting to snoop on.
Why not? Did the non-RT 430 not exist alongside the non-RT 580? One had more power and sold for more. It didn't hurt the 580.
It's about what you can sell. Till the 600, Canon historically had high and mid level flashes co-existing, as did Nikon. Since they brought out the 600, people have been expecting a smaller RT-enabled unit to come out any day (for more than two years now).
At this point, people have sort of accepted that they have to get the 600 if they want RT- and it is such a desirable feature people are ponying up the cash. So providing a mid level RT-enabled unit now makes less sense to me.
At the end of the day, I keep emphasizing on "to me" because I don't have all the market research data Canon does. So we will find out, I guess.
I agree with Sabaki. It might be a RT-equipped Macro.
Canon has not released a mid-level RT flash for this long and reduced the price of the 600s considerably, and people seem to be buying 600s happily enough. I don't see why they would want to release a 4X0-RT now and potentially decrease their profit margins.
Or else, it might be a small and inexpensive rt commander with fill flash capability only (all the functions of ST-E3-RT with flash capability of 270ex and AF assist- priced around $ 300 (wishful thinking...)
Photokina is where the big announcements will happen, that is how it usually goes at least.

Very interesting, the guy speaks about everything I think.
I can't believe that $900 lens can be better than $1200. I don't think that I pay for canon's name here, but for quality.
I have asked in the Review thread of the 35A whether people are still happy with the lens but with no reply. If other people are having problems with the 35A I'll give it a miss.
It's a fantastic lens in terms of IQ, but the focus is inconsistent (and can't be fixed with AFMA). At least in my case—I know others are happy.
