BH Photo EOS M Kit

Nice surprise. My $299 BH special came in..... but it is the 22 STM AND the 90EX flash kit. Thanks BH. I don't think I would have bot the flash separately but I may try it out and worst case sell it.

I am so glad I did not order from Adorama.  I ordered from B&H when EOS-M/22mm was already backordered, but they honored the order unlike Adorama.  I just received it, and to my surprise, B&H seems to have honored the EOS-M/22mm backorder with EOS-M/22mm/90EX kit!  That's right, 90EX flash included for my $299 order  ;D

I was also happy to find out the cheaper Viltrox adapter works great with EF lenses.

Finally, a sample shot with EOS-M/85L with the 90EX acting as master to fire off-camera 580 EX II.

FYI, I've now read of a couple of people having issues with the Viltrox adapter.

I don't think these adapters have any additional chips or programming, just straight-through contacts.  When heavy L lenses are mounted, they are probably having mechanical contact issues, as I can feel a slight "give" at the camera side.  however, my Canon-brand 2x III TC also has similar amount of "give," so if "clean contact" warning comes up, one could probably just unmount and remount the adapter.  I paid $45, so I can't complain..

I just got my backordered EOS-M and was pleasantly surprised to see the flash in there too. Now to see if the 90EX works with YN-622 triggers   ;D

Any issues with those Yong triggers?  I was thinking about buying that set before my daughter's birthday and while the reviews are good... I always like to hear some first hand experience.

I have used the Yongnuo RF-602 triggers on my EOS-M, they work fine, but they are just dumb triggers. Slightly disappointed that the sync speed is still 1/200 though. However I love that it has the full Canon RT functionality in the menu.

JD, don't get the triggers, sell your 580EX II's and upgrade to the 600EX-RT's, you will some day anyway so do it now while you can still get a great price for the 580's, you won't regret the move and using them on your 5D MkIII is a dream of simplicity.

I also got the free 90EX, it is a great optical trigger too, I emailed B&H and pointed out the error they had made, they emailed back to keep the 90EX with their compliments. Wonderful customer service.

I like the 622 so far, Im using them with a couple of YN-465s and a 600EX-RT and its really nice being able to control the power of the the flashes by group directly from my camera's flash menu. YN-465 and 622 triggers is a lot of bang for the buck.

Any chance you can tell me your order #?  I made an inquiry to B&H as to why some got the free flash and customer service would like to know which order they can reference.

The 90EX just confirms for me that Canon IS able to make a great Master speedlite at a low price if they wanted, a trend not reflected in their other triggers, speedlites, flash accessories, etc. 

I have a full complement of YN 622C triggers, but I find it so much less stuff to carry if I just pop the 90EX in the bag and use that on my 5D III as master to trigger off two speedlites, in A:B with variable ratios.  I also carry one speedlite with my EOS-M/90EX combo, a simple off-camera setup that yields much better results than on-camera flash.
