... Though I really hate the flashes of light for AF asssit.

I used my 270EX with my 1D Mark IV yesterday evening at an informal reunion, and very soon I removed the flash and relied on an ISO of 3200 and the pub lighting.  The multiple flashes from the 270EX drew far, far too much attention to me, and didn't seem to improve AF in low light.  With the 270EX removed, the Mark IV seemed to acquire focus faster if anything, and my subjects weren't alerted to my intentions.  At previous reunions at the same venue, I've used my 220EX with far better results - but of course, it doesn't do bounce.
