Having bought the G1 recently, I discovered that the in-built flash is very restricted and suitable for possibly only in-fill daytime flash. Being disappointed with the results, I decided to go for the Speedlite 420EX flash unit which is so versatile and flexible and has completely changed the results of the images. It is a must for anyone who wants to fully exploit the potential of the G1 flash capabilities. Fantastic results! It even sits better on the camera than the 540EX which is a bit too big and generally no different in specs. So, anyone looking for a suitable flash for the G1 needs to give the 420EX serious consideration!
