Re: Is the 600EX speedlight worth the $550 price tag?

I had some issues with the Nissin so I cannot recomend it. Maybe it was a bad copy but it was inconsistent in exposure ( about 1/3 stops but enough to be annoying) and I returned it after 2 days of tests and bought the Canon 430. I now use 2 Canon 430 with the Pixel King transmitter ( which actually works a lot like the 600). You will appreciate being able to change all the flash settings from the camera itself ( if you will use several 600ex) and the wireless system ( not bothering with line of sight, bright sun and other problems that the optical system has). I love using the Pixel Kings and will buy 3 Canon 600 as soon as I can afford it.
