Canon Speedlite 420EX TTL

CA420EXU_1_
Review Date: Jun 1, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $170.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Smaller than 550 monster High-speed sync Works as with wireless system (not a transmitter 550 only or ste), Powerful enough Can dial in flash ex. compensation on camera Covers to 24mm
Cons:
Only one: no external power supply outlet like on 550ex. I'd like it plug in a Dynalite Battery pack for faster recycle every once in a while.

Get it. It is half the price of the 550. Lacks the sender wireless fuction (it receives) and external power supply hook-up for super faster recycling.

Only two weakness vs. 550 that cost many times twice as much and is twice as heavy and large it seems.

Review Date: May 24, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: very very sharp, a great portrait lens on a 10D and candid,etc on a 1V. Performs alot better than the 1.2 and focuses faster.
Cons:
not l build quality. af is not instant like newer usm designs.

The best 50 in an EOS mount. A great deal. Very focal length and lens in imho.
