I would look into Yongnuo flashes(or other third party flashes with E-TTL support).

Granted they are thirdparty knockoffs, but they work basically the same, and for the price they cant be beat. This is especially true if you are just an amateur photographer looking for bang for buck.

This is the comparible model:
YN600EX-RTII

The Speedlite will last pretty much forever. I've had my 580 EXII for years and years, it's been around the globe multiple times, through some pretty nasty conditions. I've never used any other brands, because the extra money seemed an easy choice. But I've watched friends go through about 3 in the same time. However, they still spent less money than I did.

Personally, I don't care if I can buy 3 for the price of 1; when you're in the middle of the jungle in Thailand, you don't give a crap about paying an extra $150, you care about it working and not having to lug two of them around.

If you're just shooting at home and weddings, you'll be fine with a cheapo. If you're like me and want something to always work, buy the Canon.

I know the quality differences in lens. So I won't buy lens that are not name brand like canon sigma or tamron. But is flash the same as well? Frankly, I can't imagine any difference between Canon or third party flash. any info related to flash differences?

I'm using a Neewer speedlite and there are only two things that I've noticed about the cheaper flashes: the build quality is not as good and the power output of the flash is not quite as high, but it is still very strong.

What batteries is it using? Does it share the same battery type with the ST-E2?

I decided not to get it. It's $80 more at BHPhotoVideo for the newer version of the flash, but there's no sales tax for me as a Californian. So the difference is less than $50 for a better flash.

Whereas this deal is for the discontinued model and does have sales tax.

The yongnuo flashes are bang for your buck. I used to exclusively buy canon flashes but for slave flashes the yongnuo stuff can't be beat.
