Need flash for my 5D MK II not the 580 EX II....suggestions?
Feb 4, 2012

Hopefully this is the right forum.

I have the 5D MK II and the 580 EX II flash. The flash is now for sale where I hope to get between $325 and $375, hopefully!

I am selling it because I recently purchased the Pocket Wizard Flex5 wireless system.

I just found many forum posts about issues on here and other websites, involving the exact same system I have including flash burning out and firing distance interference.

I want change the flash "before" I experience any of those issues. There are fixes for the issues but I just dont want to have to get involved with that.

I want another flash with similar power and featues, ETTL, as the 580 EX II.

The 430EX II is a possibility but it has less power than the 580.

I plan on spending whatever I can get for my 580 so around $350 more or less. Any suggestions? Open to non-Canon flashes as well.
