Well I bought the 600EX-RT and should get it tomorrow. I join photo club and they are meeting this friday to take pictures at local garden. I will mostly be just watching them but maybe test out my stuff too.

The reason I was even thinking about the 600 was because 580 used on ebay going for like $375 but I can get new 600 for $499. Plus from what I have been reading they say sooner or later you will go with radio control. I don't want to buy something that later on will not use much because I bought something better.

I'm very new to this and trying to learn all I can. I bought a T3i package for christmas. I plan on going on vacation in June out west and want to take as many picture as I can at national parks. Here are the lenses I have now, I need a cheat sheet if thats the right way to say for what the best lense to use for different pictures.

EF 50mm f/1.8 II - I think used mostly for portaits
EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III - ??
EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II - ??
EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II - ??

Looking to get a canon speedlite 600ex-rt before my trip.
Thanks

So if I understand you, if I bought 2 or more 600's I would not have to buy pocketwizards or anything else to get them to work together with my T3i? When would I need a ST-E3-RT?

Thanks

hello,
Very new to all this. I bought a T3i for christmas but now want to get my first Flash. Right now I only want to buy 1 flash and later may add. If I go with 600EX-RT then buy more I know I will need the ST-E3-RT. Or is there something cheaper I could get?

If I go With the 580EX II then get another one what would I need to get both of them to work?

Which way do you think I should go? Amazon the 600EX-RT is cheaper, I know I can get good deal on ebay for 580EX II around $375 is what they been going for.
