Don't buy from Abe. I bought one from them 2 years ago it came with international warranty and it was ripped. Not happy with them.

Just the 580, or in general? I bought my 40D from them in April and although I had to call them and they tried to sell me "on sale" $70 batteries, the transaction was very smooth, including a US warranty.

I only purchased from them once for a 580ex II and it was a turn off from the second I opened the box. It had a torn warranty (international card). The flashed worked fine so I didn't bother returning it . Maybe I just had bad luck but they do have mixed reviews.

That would be the first time I have heard anyone having a problem with abes. Never personally bought anything from them but plenty of my family has and no problems with them!
