This is why I sold both 580exII and 580ex I own and finally got 600, it seem more stable and more controllable flash on 5d3. I use to have often overexposures with no reason.

Well, 580EXII and 5D III don't work well either.

580EXII wakes up 2 seconds later than expected. You press the shutter button and the flash doesn't fire...So I got used to half pressing the shutter while I move the camera to my face then half press it again to focus on the subject. Otherwise it just doesn't fire.

With 5DII it was instant.

I RMA'ed them all today (2 5DIII and 580exII). Told them not to give them back until ALL the issues with the cameras and this issues with the flash are fixed..


I can't explain all of the problems you seem to have with this camera... mine have been a dream.
