Any reviews out yet?
Would be nice to know how well the focus assist lamp does/doesn't work.
Haven't seen a review yet just a comment, I forget where now, the poster was not impressed by the AF assist lamp.
Here it is http://flashhavoc.com/yongnuo-yn-e3-rt-available-this-week/ Rod down near the bottom says "Pretty happy with the unit now, though focus assist beam seems only okay, not great."
Yeah, if you look at the images even, e.g.
it LOOKS pretty primitive -- most likely just a simple, single LED. A far cry from the AF grid that the 600EX-RT skeets out.
If you guys are interested, maybe I'll do a teardown of the unit when it arrives.
I got the fanciest shipping they offered (DHL supposedly 3-5 days) because I'm about to go on a trip, and I'm not really impressed with DHL's tracking updates. It's still stuck on "Saturday, December 14, 2013 Shipment information received -- SHENZHEN - CHINA, PEOPLES REPUBLIC". I barely ever have stuff shipped DHL though, so I don't know if their tracking always sucks or if that is indicative of a shipping problem.
I'm curious to see which RF transceiver chip they selected. I also wish i had access to a real ST-E3-RT available to compare the PCB with. I bet they almost completely ripped it off, lol.
