No compatibility for Canikon-Nicanon ...

but for the price of the 430 EX II you could check out the offerings from Yongnuo and Nissin; their (respective) YN-565EX and Di622 mkII are at price points well below Canon or Nikon, allowing you to get 2 for the price of 1.

Both have a diffuser panel allowing to cover + - 16 mm (FF), they also both have a pc terminal to trigger them from an external trigger like the new PW Plus III.

The 565 also has an external power port to connect external battery pack for superfast charging.

On top of that both have optical slave so that in manual strobist mode you could use both flashes with either camera...

It all depends on how frequently both of you want/have to use them, and what kind of use you want to make of them (strobist or ETTL/iTTL).

as always, YMMV.
