Photography Blog posted their review of the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-26EX-RT flash, a specialised piece of gear that isn’t really inexpensive.

From their conclusion:

The Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-26EX-RT is by no means a cheap piece of equipment, but it is intended as specialist kit for professional photographers who specifically need this kind of approach to flash photography.

While it’s true that you can use standard flashguns for macro work, the flexibility here to not only get close to your subject, but to position the two smaller lights in different locations means that you can illuminate your close-subjects exactly how you want them.

Particularly appealing to product photographers, the Macro Twin Lite MT-26 EX RT also has good uses for those who like to photograph flowers or small insects – the fact that the flash has a quick recharge time is particularly useful for quickly capturing subjects that are prone to move between frames.
