I have had a look of the YN-565. It have wireless slave and E-TTL, but don't have HSS :(

I don't feel like spending another $1200 on extra 580EXII, so would like to have suggestion on 3rd parties speedlite options.

The following is required:
Guide number > 50 (well... or near)
Wireless slave support - (able to wireless master would be bonus)
Most importantly, HSS!

Many thanks :)

3rd party speedlites won't give you HSS. A 580 is $1200 - where do you live?

3 x 2nd hand 580II would be $1200, would it? :)
