    Wow, that is the longest sentence I have ever read.

    Curious what you think of it, I was JUST looking into these today (for Nikon).

    It works perfectly; I use one myself as a slave. However, as a master it also works perfectly and works right with other Canon flashes.

    Albeit the fact that in October last year, when it first came out, I was conned into purchasing it for a higher price than the 430EX (I was looking for another slave and they don't sell much of other brands over here). I wanted a more powerful slave, didn't want to buy another 580, got this... go for it.
