In general, if you use 3rd party lenses or flashes, it has proven to be a good idea to wait for firmware updates before buying the latest Camera. I've seen this happening for many years, it can be frustrating for those who learn the hard way.

And it drives me crazy. Unfortunately, canon doesn't have strobes and speedlites are not strong enough for what I do.
Godox nailed these two new products (AD600 + AD200) so it was hard not to be tempted.

Truth. Godox has low & high powered bare bulb flashes, speedlights (with li-on battery packs!), and strobes that all use the same radio system, in manual & TTL varieties. It's such a well rounded system that it's hard to say no to, 3rd party or not.

Thanks for the update mazza1967! I see the autofocus beam still does not fire on my 5D4 however, I see another custom function (C.Fn-08)! I wonder what the new custom function is for.

cfn 08 forces a send of the settings every time the trigger is fired (rather than just on settings change) , in case you're having problems with your flash settings changing on you.

Yep, on the X1T-C. Oh yeah? I wonder what's going on with my 5D4. What firmware are you using?

Cool! I do have that issue sometimes. I've gotten in the habit of pressing the test flash a couple times to make sure my settings were synced.

19 on the trigger, and whatever the just released 5d4 firmware is. My trigger is recently purchased though, so it might be a later h/w revision - I know yongnuo at least has told some users that they had to update the h/w on the 600RT to make the af assist work with the 5d4, not just firmware.

I assume your af assist works on other cameras?

Yep. It works fine on my 6D. They probably did do a silent h/w update to the X1T-C. Oh well, good thing I don't use it very much.

So, with firmware V20, I just found out the X1T-C works with the M6!!! I can control the menu from the camera as well as on the trigger if I wanted, no problems!!! The XT32C also works with the M6 like it did with the M3 however, I cannot control the XT32C in the camera like I can with the X1T-C. This is beautiful!
