get a flash (430ex and above) and a cheap wireless trigger. It'll definitely improve your shots a lot more than a body upgrade. If you can use your flash off-cam, it'll make your photos look more pro-grade and less like snapshots.

Make sure that the flash you get has a manual mode. It's vital if you want to use your flash off-cam. The The 420ex and most cheaper flashes don't have manual modes

I agree with them, get the flash first then upgrade the body. ;)

Although I am not a canon user, I would also recommend buying a flash first before upgrading the body.

Go get a flash. Nuff said. It's sure to broaden your photographic horizon (Figuratively speaking of course)  ;D

Most of my photography sessions are done in available light in order not to be obtrusive. Hence, I'd go for a second body to attach a second set of lens or as a stand-in just in case Murphy creeps in. I went through the limitations of the built-in flash before I decided to have my SB900.

It actually depends on what you shoot and what your style is.

go for the flash, the body will always be upgrading. but when you have a flash na, even if you upgrade your body. the flash will always be there. just as with lenses. try to save up for quality because even if you upgrade the body, you will still have the lenses

I'd go for a flash too. It would give more improvements in your shots.
