    Which flash is suitable for you have to depend on your needs..... if you are shooting mostly portrait shots, a 430EX2 is a good enough... if you are covering events... 580EX2, would be a better choice...

    You have to ask canon why the 580EXII was launched at a lower price than 580EX.

    Anyway, if you want something light, get the 430EX. My advise get the 580EXII straight if you can afford it so you don't have to upgrade later.

    That what I did... but the Flash (compared to 430EXII) is expensive...

    Is there a 18-20mm lens? Do you mean "Canon 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 IS" (Kit 2) instead?

    But cannot compare like that mah. Then my 5D is a lot more expensive than the 5D MK II. Same logic.

    Good choice. I have both 580ex and ex2, but i find the ex2 is better -- easier to mount (with the quick release), find the exposure is better with eTTL2 on 580ex2 as compared to 580ex.
