I was about to buy a 70-200 for my son's flag football, but there is only 2 games left and the outdoor sports are fading with fall/winter coming. Now I think I'd rather just get a flash to have for the holidays and use with my 15-85. I think I'll go ahead and sell my 50 and 70-300 to fund some of it.
I haven't really been able to find any post with the 15-85 indoors with either a 580ex-II or 430ex-II. I think I can find a nice 430 for ~250 or so and that would probably be a good start for me.
any help appreciated.
Sounds perfect. If you get to know your flash and use it properly (basically, point it anyway except directly at the subject!) it will lift your pictures tremendously. Then if you get another gun and have a go at remote flash, it'll take things into another dimension entirely
Main difference between the 580 and 430 is that the big one is also a master controller for wireless remote auto-TTL flash, and it has more power.
