Anyone know if Canon will be making a receiver dongle whatever so that you can remotely trigger 580EX II and older flashes with the 600 EX?

Canon hasn't said, nor have I seen rumors to that effect.  It would certainly make sense for them to do so...but then, it makes sense for them to sell lots of 600EX-RT flashes, too...so, maybe they'll wait for a while, until sales start to drop off, then release a separate receiver.

I cant see myself getting any of these new flashes as I'm heavily invested in 580s and the odins do a good job controlling them so I'm not too excited about the new flash
