Hi Bergstrom.
I'm not sure I am comprehending your question correctly.
How could there be any downside to owning an oem flash, they set the bar which all third party manufacturers aim for.
The 600ex-rt is I believe the same power and design as the 600ex but has the rt added in.

Cheers, Graham.

Let's see...fleEbay...ships from China...temptingly good price...what makes you sure you'd be buying an OEM flash?  Quite possibly a counterfeit, in which case there are many potential disadvantages.

You beat me to it.  Counterfeit Canon flashes have been a issue.  Ebay does not remove them unless Canon calls for a take down.

Use a credit card(lets you charge back for a fake), and make sure you can identify a real one versus counterfeit.
