Default Flash for Canon 1D Mark III

Besides the 580EXII, what other best external flash will you guys recommend for the 1D Mark III. Is Quantum any good ?

They are very good but also priced accordingly...

-> They are probably best used off camera (weight, size, etc..)

I agree with NHL, if you can afford it then the Quantum's simply rock, especially if you are going off camera.
Any problems with a post or thread please use the report button at the bottom left of the post and the team will help sort it out.

Have fun everyone!
