Personally, if I had to do it all over again, I'd buy a 430II straight off and put most of my money in alienbees.
Could you elaborate on that?
A 430II for basic fill flash, bounce, and AF-assist beam use. For off-camera a B800 or Einstein with VML's can do far more stuff than just speedlites. I'm a sucker for big octo-boxes and beauty dishes and a speedlite would limit me too quickly.
Not saying I haven't speedlited smaller stuff but it just doesn't offer me what AB's do.
