430EX II Price Drops
« on: June 15, 2012, 12:42:15 AM »
I've been noticing the recent price drops on the 430EX II.  Do you think this is a sign that the 440EX-RT is imminent?

What I'm seeing in Germany, the price didn't change, but even jumped a little due to a current rebate program. But I'm sure Canon will update the 430ex2 sooner or later, maybe photokina - the only question is if they'll introduce radio receivers for optical legacy flashes, too (430ex2, 580ex2).

What price drops?  There's a rebate on the flash right now, but other than that I have not seen any price changes. 

I do think an -RT version is coming, but Canon will likely want to sell as many of the 600EX-RT units as they can before releasing a cheaper one...
