    550ex is worth the extra money - the 580ex even more so and works better with digital as it allows for the 1.6x conversion.

    The 550 and 580 also can act as masters for other speedlites - whereas the 420 can only act as a slave.

    Ive heard the most flashes have trouble working with the 300D, so make sure you call and ask.

    And personally id get a sunpak...but youll need the £150 one, because thats the only one that works auto :S

    I got my flash for free and haven't learned to use it yet. Thanx for the thread EMX you've prompted me to go and research what my flash it all about :D

    I broke down and bought the 580EX, so far I love it.
