    Looking at purchasing a dedicated flash for my A2e in the near future after using a friends 550EX (which was amazing). Made me realize how limiting the on-body gun really is.

    Thing is, my body can't use some of the features of the high end guns. For instance, due to its older flash standard it can't fire the AF assist light :o

    The 550 is out of my price range but it looks like the 540EZ is about half the price with very similar features (even less used)....minus wireless abilities primarily it seems (though Canon's site doesn't have much info).

    Is the 540 my flash or should I get a 420 to save a little more? Anyone have a simple breakdown how these 3 (or at least the 550 and 540) compare exactly?

    Oh..and does anyone here have a VG-10 for my A2e they want rid of? Other than ebay I can't seem to find one :squint:
