I currently have 2 sunpack 383 and 1 580 ex. I do allot of portrait work inside and out. Im debating getting a ab800 and vagabond. Do you think i should make the upgrade or just keep what i have? Its been going in my head for awhile and idk what to do. I would prob use the ab800 and the 580ex for most of the setups.

I ditched the speedlites and made the switch to the Bees. I love them and I think they are much better than using speedlight especially for outside daytime shots. Just my opinion though.....

I went with an AB B1600 and Vagabond II earlier this year. Though I kept my 580EX IIs. I'm glad I did buy the B1600 and Vagabond II. Great to use outdoors. For most of the year I was using the single B1600 outdoors with the sun as my rim light when outdoors.
