RELIABLE AND VERSATILE
on 7 May 2015
The purchase I made was listed as ex display, so it wasn't brand new out of the box and it was listed as the Mark ii. However, when it arrived it was actually just the Di622 and it wasn't much cheaper than buying the Markii brand new. Having said that I already have a Mark ii, hence the reason for the purchase.
Since it isn't the Mark ii I use it as my master with my Mark ii as the slave. Either way, both flash units are sturdily built the Mark ii having more functional control. I have had my Mark ii for several years and it has never let me down, apart from when I forgot to put the batteries in of course. I would definitely recommend this model, it is used in manual mode, has various power settings and is economical on battries, I use rechargables and always have a spare set just in case, but have never had to resort to using them.
Why only three stars, for no other reason than I didn't actually receive what I was expecting to receive, otherwise the Mark ii version is definitely worth five stars.
