once you figure out where stuff is, it's a really easy setup.

your focus points won't all be activated, so you'll have to go to the advanced functions menu (or whatever the one to the furthest right is)

find the C.FnIII menu then register all the functions

then when you press the point selector on the back of the camera, to actually change witch autofocus points are selected, you have to hit the M-Fn button beside the shutter release button to cycle through. I'm not sure why they did this, but it's what they did.

and for the flash, it's in the first menu under flash control, then go to "built-in flash settings" then down to wireles func. then choose how you want it fired.

On your 430ex turn on, then press and hold the ZOOM/Z button to activate slave.

and you're set.

the microadjustment is really the most painful part of it all. I haven't registered all my lenses yet
