comment How Does A 5D Mk3 Generate The Histogram It Displays In Live View?
If you turn on blinkies and then compare to the raw later (i.e. In LR) you'll find the raw has A LOT of headroom left that is not visible in the preview. This is enough to convince me.

comment Yongnuo YN-685 underexposure issue in bounce mode at longer focal length
As I mentioned elsewhere the radio capabilities are secondary for my use case so those limitations are not an issue at all for me. I use dedicated triggers in the studio.

You are likely correct that "early adopters" function as beta testers at that price point. I finally got a response from Yongnuo service and have sent them a link to this question and also to the review I posted on Amazon. I hope they appreciate the amount of work I've put into documenting this for them :-)

@inkista If you post your comment as an answer (with the link and some more detail to avoid being a "link-only" answer) I'll accept it. You are correct that it's probably too much to expect a flash costing 1/4 the equivalent unit from Canon to perform the same. That, along with the zoom motor noise, convinced me to bite the bullet and spring for the 600EX-RT.

No, but I'd be extremely surprised if that had any effect. Will try tomorrow and update the post.

comment what CPU and how much RAM to process 25-36mp images in Lightroom?
LR 6 GPU support is still somewhat flaky and in some cases causes serious glitches and reduced performance.

comment How can I eliminate white glow/halos surrounding bright objects?
That's too much to be only "blooming". Clean both ends of the lens?

comment Is it typical to experience zoom creep with the Canon EF 24-105mm F/4 L IS USM?
Common problem on this lens. I have two, purchased 2012 and 2009. The older one creeps, the newer one doesn't.

comment What is the name of the Canon SX60 HS Wireless Protocol?
That is a DNS lookup response. Nothing to do with the camera.
