I know I need a flash from some of the shots I took with the stock. Should I get the 430EX ($299) or spend about $150 more and get the 580EX? I wont be buying multiple flahses, I wont be doing this for a living. I will be taking pictures at Car shows, inside the house, places like disneyland etc. I dont think I will be shooting alot of shots in a row, but I hate to wait for my flash to charge up. I do like using it to bounce my flash off the ceiling. Will either do?
I have a Sony F32x flash. And its OK. If I can trust the guide numbers (which I'm not sure how to use)It rates:
Stock on XTi: 17
Sony F32X: 32
430EX: 43
580EX: 58

Is there that much difference in 43 vs 58? TO warrant a $430+ flash?

The 430EX is on at Circut City for $200 after $100/mail in rebate. Cheaper than I've found on the web.
