I want a new flash for Christmas and I was wondering what some of you are using out there on the DRebel. I was thinking of the 420EX, but before I buy one I was hoping to here some feedback on what works good for you. Thanks, Kevin

I bought the 420EX for my Rebel. To get decent result I use flash exposure compensation +2/3. Bounced and with the Omnibounce the results are great. I would like the 550EX but the 420EX is already too big for me and something bigger would be too much to carry around.

Thanks for your feedback everyone! The 420EX looks good and I think I will get one. A lot of value for the dollar. I like the 550/580 as well but it's a lot more cash than my wife will allow me to spend and I want to stay married ,etc. Oh, by the way, I recently picked up the BG-E1 grip and I love it! The camera feels more solid/better and the battery life is awesome. Kevin
