I am for pure canon set-up. :D Get the canon flash and save up (or visit more friends during CNY) to top up about $50 more to include the 50mm f1.8 (used/2nd hand).

I think getting the canon 430ex ii would be a wiser choice, maybe can choose to buy online also, looks like its cheaper if you're getting it from amazon or b&h. :)

you can always buy the third party brands... but please keep in mind that if Canon changed something in the flash that's mean the flash would be more or less useless for your future bodies...

I'll go for the Canon flash. If money is tight, look at B&S. There's a few 430 & 580 listed.

The Di866 will not give you wireless FP when it is used as a remote.
Could be a consideration if you uses that.

And bummer that Malaysians seem to be getting 2 YEARS international warranty with theirs while we get only 1?
