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.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

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.
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

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.
