I am amazed at how much money people spend on flashes... and how much Nikon and Canon charge for theirs! Sorry, but $600 is way over the top for what's in the box.

Years ago when I got one of my first flash units for my D30 I too thought Canon's prices were too high. I got a Sigma flash advertised as being compatible with Canon E-TTL. Worked fine on the 10D when I upgraded, not so good on the 30D. I ended up getting a 580 II, knowing it will always be compatible with any Canon DSLR. By the way, the Canon 420 EX I got around the same time as the Sigma has worked on all my cameras - currently I'm using the 7D.

To me the extra money is worth it - I won't have to buy a flash unit twice.
