I bought the Nissin Di8622 MkII flash for my Canon 60d in October. I used it in earnest at a wedding 2 weeks ago and I've been happy with it so far, plenty of power for bouncing the flash which is what I wanted. I use my camera in full manual and the camera and flash do 'talk' to one another in ttl mode and I have experimented with wireless link too. Flash recharging times was slightly problematic but it could have been my technique. It is quite power hungry so a spare set of batteries is necessary.
As always you get what you pay for and this flash was half the price of the equivalent Canon 580EX MKII flash. I haven't come across any downsides yet because It's not been used that much. I looked at the Canon 430EX MKII which was approximately the same price but I felt I would have outgrown it after a few months or jobs whichever came first. For true compatibility and to negate any issues get a Nikon. I'm not sure but I think the Nikon equivalents to the Canon are SB700 and SB900, the Nissin being the Di622 MKII and Di8622 MKII.
