Why?

What makes this so special?

Just did a Google search for Profoto a1 speedlight, just the DPReview  piece that the OP posted and nothing else. Lighting Rumors must have had an item, but has taken it down. Pretty big spend for a speedlight! Think I'll be sticking with my three 600ex rt speedlights for some time.

For me it integrates seamlessly with the rest of my profoto flashes, easy to use interface, rechargeable battery.

Since this serves two purposes being a air-ttl remote (retails for over $350) and a speedlight, the price isn't that outrageous.

Anyone want to buy an extremely gently used 600 EX

There are quite a few strobes that integrate seamlessly with the Canon system.  For example I have the Indra 500 which has all of the features of the Canon speed light and the extra power.  I just can't imagine spending all that money on a speedlight, especially if most wedding photographers use 2-3 speedlights.  I often have two off camera flashes, and on camera flash, and a strobe all going on in different areas of a wedding reception.  If that were a profoto system it would be A LOT of money.
