    The 430EXII should be more than sufficient for your needs and budget.

    What would the difference be? What kind of user reviews are you looking for that www.the-digital-picture.com does not provide? As far as I know, they are the most detailed reviewers for Canon equipment (from external looks and build quality to actual performance).

    Buying a 430EX would save you some money now...... but I believe you will easily 'outgrown' your flash..... then spent more $$$ to upgrade again

    Btw..... If ever Canon have a more powerful Flash (sooner or later)..... I most likely would get it once the price is right.....
    yes, i agree with diver here. I thought I can save some $$ by buying the 430EX...after awhile, I upgrade to the 580EXII as I started to go into off-shoe flash n multiple flash setup...

    wasted some money along the way...Go for the best so there is no need to waste money to upgrade later...

    i owned a 420ex before... 2 weeks after i got 420ex... i sold it to fund it for 580ex... loss of $50... it is up to you to choose if you want more powerful flash or save the money for some other things... but you certainly won't go wrong with stronger flash in hand.. can always look around for 2nd hand stuff if you don't mind
