If I recall correctly, the 550EX does not know what a crop sensor camera is and will assume you are using a full frame sensor.

It will work, but the light spread from the zoom will be off.

My photography instructor uses one on his personal 40D, and perhaps on the taxpayers' 50D, and has to use it on manual mode only. By manual, I mean the flash has to be set on manual mode, though he also uses the cameras on manual mode. I thought he said something about it being made for the older Canon film cameras, and/or what 00Dan said might be the case.

Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N/M3; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/1Dx/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 24-70/2.8G.
