If I am not mistaking the EOS 5D3 has an integrated wireless module to trigger remote 600EX-RT flashes.
Can anyone confirm this and is there someone who has tested this functionality?

Sorry, but you are mistaken - the 5DIII does not have the ability to directly trigger flashes wirelessly.
I really wish it did.. I'd jump on the new flash so much faster if I didn't have to buy the trigger to use it remotely. From a consumer standpoint I just can't justify both for an off camera flash. The price of the flash alone from amazon has dropped to 608, though, and that was enough to make me jump on it. http://amzn.to/Jrhc9R
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.

I just received my 600EX-RT and I love it... I seriously love the design, I love this new mount, so easy to put it on and off the camera, and they include 2 jells with it, plus the bag is great, can mount it to my strap, I simply love this new 600EX-RT.... :)

That's awesome. I recently got a 600EX-RT too! Im very happy with mine - totally worth it.  :)

Anyone know of a 3rd party that makes different colored gels that would fit in Canon gel holder on the 600?

600EX-RT is my first ever external flash unit and I do like it in every way.

The only problem is how Canon keeps upping the price.

If you have the 5D3, as you profile reads, you need the st-e3-rt to complete the set.  It's an amazing set up.  Only problem is you'll want a second 600rt, or a fifth.  I have the st-e3-rt and two 600RT flashes.

I know, I've been looking at the ST-E3-RT.  I will eventually get one, but right now I'm saving for the 24-70II.   ;)
