Most people would never notice the light leakage But.. avoid 1 or 2 in the 6th digit of the serial number.

Cheers for that but it would quite difficult to do qhen ordering via online..
This is where we in the UK & Europe can get our savings as we feel the pricing by Canon is 'ripping' us off and subsidising other markets.

Have done the comparisons between Nikon and Canon....and
1) Still prefer the reviews from various sources regarding the Canon
2) Have a few pieces of equipment that are for the Canon and would require a wholesale refit, which as you will appreciate then makes the savings via an upgrade path futile

I have been frustrated with this issue as well.
I had no issues with 580exII on Canon 7D using 17-55f2.8 IS
I have missed quite a few shots with 5D Mark III and 24-105 f4 IS using 580EXII due to focus lag when AF assist beam used. I recently purchased 600EX-RT due to claim of better 61 AF point assist. No difference, it still slow in auto focus.
Then did a search and found this thread. This is a real issue for me As well as most other posters on this thread.

Isn't it frustrating, though? You spend years perfecting your style and building your business...then you go the extra
step and spend the money on the latest equipment so you can even better your product....and poof!...you wind up
screwing up important images because the new equipment is worse than the old....then you go out and spend more
money on expensive accessories (flash) to hopefully recoup your composure and confidence and it falls flat anyway...
.........ARE YOU LISTENING ......CANON???......This isn't going to go away!!!
