    allright so i've about 350ish to spend.

    Would you suggest this:

    Option 1:
    http://www.amazon.com/Speedlite-Rec...?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1207025701&sr=8-12

    Option 2:
    http://www.buydig.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=CN580EXII

    Option 3:
    http://www.amazon.com/Canon-430EX-S...4?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1207025701&sr=8-4
    + Optika Grip and Remote.
    http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-Grip-V...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1207025832&sr=1-1

    Which option would give me a good start.

    Also at what point does the power on the 430 become not enough that i'll be needing the 580ex?

    You might as well staple your balls to your thigh and run around screaming "Look at me! I'm the crown prince of ballstapia!" if you don't grip your XT(i), camera is fucking worthless without one if you don't have dainty asian woman hands that are only good for making the penises of american businessmen look big.

    Now that I have a 20D with a grip, I hate holding my 10D without a grip... I couldn't imagine a XT(i) without one.:hsugh:

    well i ended up getting the 430ex for 220 @ CC. They price matched it with Sams Club who had it for 242 and i had some Gift cards...so not bad i guess at that price.
