    Im really curious to know how this has been performing. I've heard both good and bad things. More good than bad really.

    Mirror lock up is essential for some of the things I do so I find that the most useful. Flash compensation looks very promising as well although I haven't gotten around to playing with it yet. It adds a lot interesting features.

    I've used it for months. Also at least three other people I know have it and use it. No problems ever. My favorite among the new features is FEC, since my 420EX does not have FEC.

    MLU is also useful. It works with an adjustable delay--1.5 to 10 seconds--between mirror lockup and the shutter release. You can use it as a cable release alternative, too, if you don't have one or left it in the car, since it functions like a short timer release.

    The ISO 3200 is a novelty I could have lived my life without.

    You can also select between shutter/aperture increments of 1/3 or 1/2 stop.

    My only regret is that Wasia abandoned the project before he got the AI Servo focus selection working!

    Get it and don't worry.
