    My SO got me a 100$ gift certificate to a local camera store and i am not sure what i should get. I was thinking of getting the 420 ex and forking over an extra 100$ or getting some filters. I take most of my pics outdoors, so i am leaning towards filters(for 70-200 f/4L), but i don't know which ones to get. What would you reccomend(circular polarizer, neutral density etc)? If you have any other suggestions of what i should get for 200$ then that would be great too. Thanks.

    ~ $170 for my 420EX and I couldn't be happier. I'll probably upgrade to the 550EX down the road but what I'm using it for now, the 420EX is more than enough. If that takes up your budget, getting a circular polarizer in the near future would be useful since you shoot mostly outdoors. Your pics will be a bit more saturated, darken the sky, remove unwanted reflections, yada yada yada.

    I agree, polariser. And if you do any kind of portrait / macro etc etc you NEED a reasonable flash :bowdown:
