Is this flash a good flash for my Canon Rebel XT. Where does it rate with other Canon speedlight flashes?

Something that may help:


Hot Shoe & External Flash Compatibility

The EOS 350D/Digital Rebel XT has a dedicated hot shoe (in addition to the pop-up flash) and can mount any (except the 160E and 200E) Canon Speedlight, but some advanced features (FP flash sync, flash exposure bracketing with multiple flash units, and flash modeling) are available only with the 580EX or 550EX flash units. Canon's nifty (and very useful) E-TTL II flash exposure metering system can only be used to full potential with the 580EX, 550EX, 420EX and 220EX, Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX or Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX. The EOS 350D/Digital Rebel XT's hot-shoe will accommodate third party flash units, but only in manual mode.
