    I don't own any of those flashes but I do have the yongnuo triggers so that i can get my canon flashes off camera. I like yongnuo and they seem to do a good job at offering modest priced equipment that works well. I would probably spend the few extra bucks on the 565 and get the TTL functionality.

    I have three Yongnuo YN600EX-RT flashes with the shoe mounted trigger and they are fantastic! I got the whole set up for less than a single equivalent Canon (600ex RT) flash unit would have cost. Yongnuo now sells an updated version, the YN600EX-RT II, available for about $115 at B&H.
