How would anyone
expect a camera company to make its cameras compatible with the
myriad of flash units available out there.

Simple. Follow industry standards, like ISO 10330 (Photographic Equipment, trigger timings and connectors), which Canon CLAIMS they comply to.Their advertising claims the camera is professional-grade, their appearances at Photokina etc carry the same message. Heck, the Pro 90 is worse yet bears the apellation "Pro"! Funny how it doesn't work with pro gear, huh.

One could make the same argument about, say, film speeds -- which is why they, too, have ISO norms.

I actually don't think this is caused by a nefarious plot at Canon tou gouge consumers into buying 550EX's -- I think they screwed up in the flash trigger design, plain and simple. Covering it up and trying to "spin" their way out of it -- THAT's the nefarious plot part.
