"I have a ST-E3 Transmitter, two Speedlite 600EXii's and two Speedlite 580EXii's. Currently using the two 600's as radio slaves. Works fine. I'd also like to use the 580's in close proximity to the 600's. So, I would think that I could keep using the 600's fired (via radio signal) and use the 600's, in turn, to fire the 580's optically. But I don't find anything in literature and no menu options that indicate that the 600's can act as radio slaves and optical masters at the same time."
Thanks for your question about combining Canon 600EX II Speedlites with Canon 580EX II Speedlites. That's quite a question. I have both the Canon 600 and 580 flash units too.
