Good overview of Canon Speedlites


Canon Speedlites compared – 580EX, 430EX, 420EX, 220EX, 380EX, 550EX. _The net is that the 420EX was just $180 new vs. the new 430EX at $250 and is just about the same, so get it used on ebay.

If I was a typical amateur photographer who was looking for a new speedlite to go with a new DSLR, I’d probably go for the old 420EX if I could find one, unless I was really serious about flash photography.
