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.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

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.
