I pad $1800 for a used 85mm F1.2 II from B&H and it was rated at 9/10 by them in terms of condition etc. There is currently one on B&H Used for $1689.95 plus taxes I assume.

Took this on the Isle of Skye at Elgol. Did well for me in competitions this year.

Very nice! Did you use any sort of ND filter?
Did well for me in competitions this year.I can see why ... EXCELLENT image, well captured.
I picked up a hähnel Giga T Pro II RF remote. Interval timer, the remote unit is small enough to fit in the palm (for getting in the picture if needed). I like that the remote unit can actually be plugged directly into the camera if desired (i.e. used as a wired release) for interval timing, etc.
You could also get a long sync cord (see, e.g., http://ocfgear.com/) which would let you use the 600 off camera and still trigger the 430 optically as a slave in ETTL or Manual, I think. The 10m cord is $65 and the 5m cord is $48.
