    without knowing what is your usage, the best advice is buy the flash fit your budget.

    Agree with the rest.... go for a 580EX II.

    Its the most powerful flash you could get from canon...... better an overkill in term of power, then to discover later that a cheaper model was unable to give you the extra power you need...... then upgrade again, even 'waste' more money.....

    btw...... a 580EX II could still be sold at a good price as 2nd hand.
