Canon Speedlite 420EX TTL

CA420EXU_1_
Review Date: Apr 16, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $240.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Good FIll flash, ETT-L works well on both D-30 and 1D, will work quite adeqyuately as a slave to a 550EX.
Cons:
A little underpowered, and very slow to recharge after firing. Will generate red eye, even with reduction, unless taken off camera.

I am still a happy owner of a 420EX, though it now has been relagated as a slave for extra light. It still is a world better than any built in flash, and works mostly good as long as the area is relatively confined. It also works quite well as an additional light source in a slaved configuration.

 
Canon EF 35mm f/2

Review Date: Apr 2, 2003 Recommend? no | Price paid: $243.00 | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Image quality really quite good.
Cons:
Abysmal Build Quality, No USM

AN Ok lens if all you shoot is in nice conditions. This is horrible build quality and doesn't have the price tag that other bad builds have (Canon 50mm F/1.8).

So the Quality to pice comparison is only usefull if you don't plan to take this out of the city, or out in the cold.
