430EX II Going Out?

(1/2) > >>

libertyranger:
Is Canon going to stop producing the 430 EX II.  Called my local Best Buy to go and get one tomorrow and they said they were not receiving any more stock of them since Canon has a new flash out (the 600 I presume).  Anyone hear or know anything about this?  would it be a bad idea to get a 430ex II now?

neuroanatomist:
Ahhh yes, the brilliant folks at Best Buy.

It's very unlikely.  Canon will probably discontinue the 580EX II since the 600EX-RT is a replacement, but the 430EX II is a rung down on the ladder.

ryanjennings:
I bought one a few days ago on canon direct's clearance page.  Made me wonder what the plan was for the 430.

peederj:
I suspect they'll have a new one that uses radio control alongside a new Rebel that uses radio control by May.

Is it safe to assume that the price of 580 EX II will go below $400 after 600EX-RT is available this April? I also heard about non RT 600EX. May be it will sell at same price point as current 580EX II.
