Re: Any experience, problems, buying used Canon 430ex II?

Hi, My wife thinks I own half the European stock of old 550Ex Speedlites - she is wrong, just. All but one, pre-owned & they have been great with Odins since Nov 2011.

I know I'm tempting fate, but I've had zero problems!

I did stay with pristine looking units - and with Ebay vendors where the vibe was that they were very keen to maintain their near 100% positive feedback. The photos had to be good enough to allow checking of the fresnel and the foot (plastic, on a 550Ex). But maybe I've used up all my luck!
