I'm not sure if this is a good deal or not. Overstock (external link) has Canon Speedlite 600EX for $488.69

Title says EX, info says ex-rt. if this lacks the RT capability then the price isn't that great

I thought all were EX-RT? never knew there was just 600EX. B&H is $545. So 10% off makes it legit price for 600Ex-RT.

And of you look at what's included, it lists a 600EX, not 600EX-RT. Kind of weird.

Like I asked, I don't think there is just 600 EX model. Lot of folks call it 600EX or 600RT.

They do exist. Do a search and you will find them. Mostly grey market and some on eBay.

Here is a link

Take it back. I see 600ex without RT. BUt I think this one being sold is 600ex-rt. One can always return within 30 days based on overstock website.

The 600EX is available in other countries, but not in the US. Here is a Canon rep talking about it:

Doing a search for the model number (5739B002) and it looks to be grey market. Nothing shows up on any of the authorized retailers nor Canon's own website.

Buy.com has it based on the search of the model number and guess who is selling it...BigValueInc and if you've been following the 5D3 debacle, this should give you an idea
