I forgot the setting of the zoom on a Canon 600 EX-RT.
Is it 70mm? Somehow this number comes to me and I couldn't verify it on the Internet.
I know with Better Beamer it is 50 mm.
Thanks.

70-85 is generally what I recommend, if your flash has an 85 setting, it's a tiny bit better. The Better Beammer can't be specified (even though they do) because their lenses are all over the place in focal length.

So are you saying that 70-85 is the recommended setting for all lenses (i.e. 500mm), or just a 600mm?

Thanks E.J.
It has 50;70; 80 and 100.
I guess it either 70 or 80 then.
