why i purchased the USA version of my 420ex coz it had a $15 rebate
making it equal to the imported model (even $5 cheaper).

by the way if i combine alienbee800 and 550ex will it have a
difference light cast or color temperature?

Yep.. get the import - cheaper and it's exactly the same as the USA
model (save for the warranty).
With me, I got the import model because I'm not even in the U.S. so
what's the point of having a U.S. warranty if I'm not going to be
shipping the item to the U.S.
