    Obviously it's not going to be in the same class as the Canon and other major third party manufacturers, but I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's used one.

    G'day Mark

    Exp with that LED unit - no, sorry mate
    But I do have 4x Yongnou flashes + wireless triggers that get used in various workshops and they all go extremely well

    All the above cost less than 1x brand-name super flash

    Thanks Phil,

    I've heard lots of good things about the Yongnuo flashes, which is why I was looking at this unit.

    I've had lots of arguments on another forum that the MR-58 is not a flash at all, it's a light. Although no-one making this argument had actually seen or used one.

    I've only had one response from someone who actually has one, and in his opinion it's not worth spending the money on as the intensity of the "flash" is all but useless for "anything other than stationary objects under controlled conditions."

    Similar to Phil, I haven't any experience with this particular item but I've used Yongnuo speedlights a lot and I'd certainly buy again.
