    I have some money put aside now for a flash. I am going to be shooting some weddings next summer and fall so I need to start practicing now. I am looking at the 550ex and the 580ex. I can get the 550ex for $299 and the 580ex for $360. Do you think its worth the extra 60 bucks to get the nicer one? I plan on getting two eventually, but i only have the bucks for one now.

    I have read mixed reviews on both so I'm still not sure on what I want to do. I know there are quite a few wedding photog's on here that have experiance with these flashes.

    Thanks in advance
