HSS works with 5Dmk2, and sync speed is 1/200 just like 580EX. The main thing you lose is the group mode, but you do have the ability to control A, B , and C groups separately in manual. Not too big a deal. These things are great. I went your route and bought lighting equipment rather than going to 5DmkIII. First off, if you buy some softboxes or umbrellas, it's going to be 10X more impactful than getting the 5DmkIII, IMO, unless you are shooting sports or other fast moving subjects that need great AF. I'm waiting till Canon can match Nikon's 800e in terms of resolution before upgrading.
