Good to know. I thought someone on here had posted that they purchased one, but I wasn't sure. Looking at some of the photos people post on that forum proves that it has the ability to offer the quality I'm looking for. Obviously you're another pleased owner, too. The quality is there, it's more portable, and due to the lens it comes with it's pretty flexible in the type of photos it takes... Hmm.

Nice review, do like how Zach writes. I'm obviously not keeping up well though, as last time I read his blog he'd just switched from N to C

I know the camera doesn't make the photographer, but I think I'm going to be posting my Canon gear up soon!

And I'll want to buy some of it but something will break on my car just before you post it.

I have limited camera gear, what gets me into trouble is my fn lighting gear!

Looking at getting some cheap lighting gear and seeing if it's for me, I'm not fussed about using TTL, just manual flash. I can pick up two Yongnuo (or Kung Pow) 560 II's (the one Zach was using in that review) and the same brand wireless remote triggers for less than half the price of one SB700. Seems too good to be true no?!

I think what I took from the review is the attitude and freedom you get from using a camera like this changes how you approach taking photos, this in itself could prove an improvement in photography skills.

The Yongnuo's are supposed to be fantastic but cheap (price and quality). You'll probably go through them faster than you would a SB700.

I suppose its the buy cheap, buy twice, but they seem to get really highly rated.

Could be a good way to test out how much I enjoy doing strobist work, I doubt it would be something I do everytime I pull out the cam. It's not like it will be a work horse or anything.

Anyone getting started in strobe work would be well served to have a couple on hand considering how cheap they are IMO.

I should take my own advice lol.

I use their wireless triggers, 3+ years later, only issue I ever had was they weren't seeming to work, couldn't figure out why. I ended up removing the battery from the trigger that mounted to the camera and re installed, worked fine since. Not bad for $60

In the other hand if say someone drops a Canon lens into the bag with the 5d That doesn't thread on to the 5d body you have an issue. Didn't know it could happen but then again I wound Up not being able to attend the event it was for so nothing major.
