I had one of the backordered B&H orders in and it arrived today ($299 deal).  I was pleasantly shocked when I pulled the little flash out of the box - they sent me the kit with the flash!  That was a very nice little upgrade on what was already a fabulous deal

I finally received mine today from the original $299 deal ... and yes, they sent me the kit with the speedlite 90EX .... Bonus !

Nice feeling, isn't it?  Although I do agree with some of the above posters - I don't see the flash getting used very much.
Very Nice!
I'm playing with the flash, and it's not that bad so far, plus you get ettl control of speedlites. I have RT-full-ettl control, but this little guy is a good back up. And you won't even notice it in your pocket

I would never have bought the 90EX flash, but I can see me using it. Already used it on the 1Ds MkIII as a controller, love it so far.
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

I would never have bought the 90EX flash,

unlike others, I received mine without the flash.  After a quick email to B&H (and some help from some users on this forum), I got the free flash.  Not really happy with it (no bounce, inconsistent output, no controls,push-button power switch) but I can't complain.  It was free.  It's much more well balanced than having my 430 ex ii on top of the M.

I'm with neuro/private though.  I would never have purchased this flash.

I like the little guy. Not very powerful but very portable and does a relatively decent job for what it can do. It's more powerful than the built-in flash in many high-end mirrorless cameras. And it can trigger my 600-RT.

The 90EX is better than the ST-E2, for half the price.


I'm really loving that 90EX, so much so that I carry it for my 5D III instead of my all-out radio transceivers.  Much lighter, smaller, and just more convenient than the whole get-up.  90EX also elevates the humble EOS-M to strobist greatness with use of off-camera speedlites on the go.
