    I currently have a 5DMkII and 2 580EXII speedlites with PocketWIzard a MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 units and am looking to expand the set to 3 speedlites.

    Is the new 600-EX-RT Speedlite compatible with the PocketWiz system, ie will it work with on a FlexTT5 unit and will it be able to use HSS, (as I think pre 2012 camera bodies have an issue here?)

    In fact I seem to be having trouble finding anywhere that sells the 580EXII these days?

    Nissin 866's are GN60 and work with PW'a on ETTL (I'm lead to believe)

    Canon also make a non radio trigger model 600-EX - you could continue to use you PW's with these.

    But i hear its hard to buy.

    Anyone know where I can get a 580EXII
    It seems Canon have discontinued it, while not making available the new ones, so what are we supposed to buy?
