They look really good!
I've got a slew of PW II's.
Not sure I'll switch.

I also have a bunch of PW II's. No reason for me to switch.

The price on B&H for the III's appears to be $30 less than the II's. I've got use (that's just short of "need") some additional triggers. I don't know if I should wait to see if the used market for the older ones goes down or buy the new ones. I've got the feeling the price for the III's is introductory.

I read elsewhere that the new units are going like hotcakes at WPPI.

From what I understand it is still not good with speedlights, as it wont convey ETTL to flex units unlike the mini.

That's right it's more like the Multi-Max units but not TTL compatible.

These look so cool, but I have original Plus and MultiMAX units coming out of my ears.

If I didn't have all the Plus units I'd have gotten a few of these for sure.

Depends on your venue! And the the co-op with your fellow photogs!
Some will stay with the same channnels 1-4! Others will "jam"! Some willl say "buy MultiMax...to buy the extra channels!

I use the MultiMAX exclusively for those situations; I use the ability to lag remote cameras, which even the new Plus III units lack.

My numerous Plus units were all purchased used, and live with my lights; that way, they're always ready to go, and I don't have to knock around my MultiMAX units if I'm shooting a plate of food, portrait, etc.

They do look nice, but I am good as well. I have 5 FlexTT5, 2 MiniTT1 and 5 Plus II's. That's more than enough for my needs presently. If that changes, the Plus III's are the logical choice.
