    I can has 580exII and ngt22 tundra tripod. They had some pretty good prices for a b&m store. 580ex2 was 499, 80 more then adorama. had a couple used flashes, 540ex was $325 and some other stuff I don't remember. and they had a decent amount of len's in stock but no L. Was talking ot the guy and one of the customers in town who owns a business ordered a 800mm f/5.6L IS USM said it cost him 13k and had it shipped to him up in alaska where he was on a trip/vacation.

    Everyone loves to buy gear dude but slow down, learn about composition and your basic camera settings first.

    And the 580ex II costs $400. Instant gratification is paying $430. $500 is just stupid.

    i don't think you can brag about spending $100 too much on a $400 flash.

    No offense, but this is probably a defining point to your entire life.
