I'm a Canon convert who's seen the Nikon light. My question is about on-camera flash heat resistance. I had Canon's 580EX II (the flagship) speedlight and it shut down due to overheating on a sunny 86 degree Grand Canyon day. I was shocked, a $500+ flash having a problem in 86 degree weather, with about 4 flashes (not rapid shots). That performance is unacceptable!

Which flash has the best performance and heat resistance? I'm considering Nikon Metz 52AF-1, SB-700, or SB-910.
