Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality, Fast recycling time
If you know macro, you know you need serious light. All the people on the Internet that have a problem with the 65 mp-e (boohoo no AF) and this flash (ermahgerd its so harsh) don't know macro. It's a totally different beast. You need this if you're serious about macro. If you wanna take pictures that make the viewer wish they could shrink to the size of a grain of rice to ride on a bee like Falcor from the Neverending Story, get it and a serious macro setup.

Costly paper weight. Canon did not publish good data as to what lenses it could be used with.

Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality, Fast recycling time
Cons: needs adaptor rings in different sizes
Great flash to use for macro work, but I wish that adaptor rings could be made available to use with other lensed especially now that the new macro lens that was just announced.

Pros: Superior build quality, Fast recycling time, Good Exposure performance
Cons: needs step down adapter on 180/3.5
Very good product, Would be nice if it would not need a step-down adapter for the 180mm lens. Would also be nice if that adapter would be included either with the lens or the flash unit.

Pros: Superior build quality, Fast recycling time, Good Exposure performance, quiet
Canon's macro system is without peer, both in available options, quality, and ease-of-use.
As an amateur, I was able to pull this sophisticated flash out of the box, mount it, and adjust the ringlight flash to my new 50D within minutes ... and fire-off crystal-clear macro shots at the end of my 100 mm USM macro lens.
This is an incredible piece of equipment and yet easy to use if you just read the instructions and follow them.
