Canon should also update their ST-E3 RT and just add AF assist which would be very useful for field use. Also I was hoping we would see update to 320ex with RT support(slave mode only) before seeing update to 600ex-RT which has been selling quite well.

Absolutely agree - AF assist its a MUST !!!

Head rotation like the Sony HVL-F60M would be nice.

For everyone complaining about having to use the display on the flash to change settings.  If your camera is from 2012(when the 600EX was released) through the current time.  You can use the display on the back of the camera to change the flash settings. On the 7D Mark II all you have to do is push the flash button/lightning bolt on the front of the camera to bring up the flash settings.  I use this all the time and find it very useful.   Please forgive me if you already know this.  I just wanted to help out the people that did not know about this feature.

Sony doesn't allow to flip the head 180 deg to shoot against a wall. So it's somewhat good, but also not perfect. A combination of both would be really nice :)

I expect a more secure communication protocol.  Certain brands have apparently hacked the Canon wireless protocol, so it will be encrypted.

How about something like colour matching with RGB LED and colour sensor or even using the camera to learn the lighting colour.

Then when mixing flash and ambient light you can always hit bang on colour balance automatically without having to muck about with gels.

Could you not also do video or stills with the same unit if going for LED?

If they came out with new ones with increased working distance (via radio), I'll have a dozen 600EX-RT v.I strobes for sale.

Even better would be if they each worked like a repeater for the signal so you could string them together to make any distance needed.  I'm often hoping for more distance and the most I can usually get reliably is like 75-100'.

Very unlikely. I don't think they can make that work with properly when taking into account the needed timing accuracy of about a micro second for the flash triggers.

Surprising. That would be the shortest model cycle for a Speedlight that I can recall. But why not?

I won't be feeling professionally diminished when I turn up to jobs with my ancient 600 EX-RT MkI's... ;D

The interface of the Phottix Odin in a revamped ST-E3 RT would be nice.
Push group button -> turn dial -> adjust and ready.
And ALL groups visible at once.

My bet is the same physical packaging and slightly faster or slightly more powerful...

As time passes, newer components become available with better specs and eventually the old ones get hard to find... so out comes a new model.
The best camera is the one in your hands

Those are all nice features, but not enough to entice me to part with $600.00.  My 600'3 X 2 work flawlessly, and do everything I ever need- for now.

Cameras: 1DXII,5D III, 5D II.  Lenses    24-70 2.8L II IS, 70-200 f4L IS, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, EF 400 5.6L, 300 2.8 IS II, Samyang 14 mm 2.8.   Flashes: 600EX-RT X 2, ST-E3-RT, 580 EX II.
Plus lots of stuff that just didn't work for me
