Default Which flashgun for Canon 7d?

Hello

I am user of Canon 7d and now I am willing to purchase a flash gun. I am interested in two models

1) Canon 580EXII
2) Canon 430 EXII

I mostly do fashion shoots (studio and outdoor) and some weddings. Both flashes are in my budget.

So kindly tell me that which flash gun is best for me because after purchasing I do not want to update my equipment soon,

Thanks

If price is not an issue, go for the 580EX II.

hello eshban
someone suggested the metz 58 ?? model
says metz has a deal with canon so they fire properly and i looked at the unit and it looks good, has a usb port to upgrade,
however, i bought the 580 ex ll and it works fine
just an option for you to look at and maybe test
good luck

metz are just as good as the canon. The new metz 50 replaced the metz 48, which goes up against the 430exII. The metz 58 AF II is the flash that is at the same level as the 580EXII. All 4 flash are good, but the metz 58AFII and the canon 580exII are higher end flash.
