hi all, i was wondering if anyone had some sort of trick or tweak to get the 420ex to drop down to 25mm zoom mode for when i'm using my g6's wide angle adapter. the only thing i could think to do was bounce flash, however, in certain conditions that trick falls through and you want a bit more direct light. please advise

You could always fit the Omni Bounce attachment and not tilt the flash head. Any fix is going to involve some type of diffusion. I do it with both my 550EX and 420EX and it works. No matter what you use you'll be losing effective distance to cover a wider angle.
