    had one for a couple of weeks as well, as good as my 430exii except this one can do 1/128 of power as well.
    made some comparison and it's power is the same as my 430exii

    The YN560ii comes with a neat leather-like pouch which is a big improvement to the YN560 pouch. Another cool thing is it comes with a separate Stofen-like flash diffuser. Power-wise and zoom-wise it is the same as the YN560. It has a new mode called Multi, which according to the manual, "allows rapid series of flashes to be fired". Though, personally, I don't see how it could be a useful mode. I think its coolest most useful feature is the battery power indicator which let users know if and when to replace the batteries.

    By the way, the YN560ii has a digital interface that shows the power and zoom settings at all times. But usability-wise, I find the LCD interface harder to use since you have to look closely and *read* the setting (which makes it unfriendly to photographers with poor eyesight). Unlike the YN560 which shows the power settings as a series of LED lights. One glance at the YN560 (even at 10 ft away) and I know immediately what my setting is - no reading, no squinting to get a good look. Plus it sort of takes time to translate a number into brightness/zoom.

    If they drop the price of the older YN560 to anything below P3000, I suggest to get them instead. The battery power indicator is nothing an extra set of batteries cannot fix. And besides, any serious photography enthusiast should have an extra set of batteries anyway.

    i really wish they'd drop the price. But I think it's part of their marketing strategy.. "560 no stock, but we have better 560ii just add 400."

    I just got my new Yongnuo YN 560-II yesterday. So far so good! I got it directly from Yongnuo's Ebay store so I paid much cheaper plus 1 year warranty. Although I had to wait 2 weeks for the package to arrive. The box came in bubble wrapped and the package includes the flash, the usual chinese and english manuals, the flash foot, a nylon fitted case, and a free diffuser. I tested all modes and settings and was pleased with everything.

    Compared to my older Nissin Di622 Mk II, the YN's finish is more "plasticky" but it seems durable because I accidentally dropped it (agad!) from about 1 ft from the floor but was still working. In terms of quality, I liked the light that was being produced by the YN better.

    whoa I didn't know you had this one sir Wins! I wanted to try one for its TTL optical slave (S1 or S2?)... I tried one of your 460-II and the optical slave isn't as sensitive when exposed to broad daylight. hehehe
