I have a 430 EX and I REALLY hate the twist lock mount it has. I was thinking, does anyone know if the mount from a 430 EXII can be used as a direct replacement for the hideous mount that I have? Thanks in aadvance for any help you can provide.
I think that's a no. I was thinking the reverse. I like the old fashioned twist mounts better. Much less error prone and probably easier to fix if it fails. The twist lock was on the plus side when I compared the 580EXII to the Metz AF-2. Still ended up going with 580EXII and 430EXII but the new locking mechanisms I still don't like.
