The PocketWizard Plus IV is in stock and now shipping. For those not familiar with the new Plus IV, it essentially takes all the functionality of the Plus III and added a top shoe for mounting speedlights.
Additionally, the Plus IV will pass through TTL data when mounted on camera but limits transmission to manual triggering only.
