    I bought it few months ago and only yesterday I was able to test it.
    I am extremely happy with this unit. The response is beyond my expectation.
    I really recommend this product even if it cost you a little extra than some of the amazon/ebay ones.

    Just one little thing- If you are nikonian, you need to source a cable separately. It would have been nicer if the cables was supplied with this unit with a little extra charge.

    Overall, Excellent product!!!.

    Decided to buy Aussie and don’t regret it, great piece of kit that works – and with local support.
    Make sure you get the correct adapter cable if using on Nikon gear.
