I've read so much about the 430ex ii and 580ex ii and looked at a billion pictures of them. I research products to death.
So I went to bestbuy today just to look and touch them physically. When I first saw them, I thought they looked ridiculously huge. After seeing so many pictures, it was totally different seeing them in person! wow!! Well they let me put them on the camera and test them both out.
I am quite stuck deciding between them. Many sites say 580ex ii is worth the extra money. I am willing to spend that money if it really is worth it. But I can also deal with settling for the lesser of the two.
Has anyone else had difficulty choosing between the two? If so, which one did you choose and how do you feel about your purchase?
I own an xsi. I am a hobbyist, but I love to try new things and a bit of everything.
