No, but they don't need to because the ST-E3-RT works as advertised on every camera every single time.

Every camera? Well, afaik I know the Canon original does have some issues with pre-2012 camera bodies.

As you have guessed, even as a vocal critic of the Yn I cannot help but mention that the missing Mac compatibility is known before purchase. Otherwise I'd like to make the case for Linux fw upgrade support :-)

No, not issues, AS ADVERTISED, actually it works better than as advertised, the sync speed is better for one.
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.

As of today, I have 2 600ex rt's... so I'm debating on whether I'm going to get a another to do RT or the St-e3-rt... the YN-E3-RT isn't really on my radar screen... mostly because of this thread. 

Though, it is a good problem to have. Which to get... which to get.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100L-> 85mm f/1.8 USM-> 8mm -> 85mm f/1.2L mkii

I don't think I could go with three @ the same time.  It's like women in bed... eventually one would feel left out...

2 to 1 ratio works better in portrait. Balance is better with St-e3-rt on body over 600ex.
