    Manual ONLY - zoom and power levels. There will be no auto-anything with
    the 10D and an EZ flash.

    That line of EOS digital cameras must have a flash with the EX suffix. The
    earlier line of EOS film cameras would use flashes with EZ. There is a big
    difference between the flash modes of film versus digital cameras, so the only
    way that you shoot is to use the 540EZ and the camera in manual mode, or switch
    to the 550EX or 420EX and shoot E-TTL like is intended.

    A film camera can have a detector that sees the light bouncing off the film
    after the mirror has flipped up. However, a digital camera has no film, so it
    can't use the same methods.

    So if you have a mix of older, say EOS-1, 100, 500, and newer
    10D and 1V, you can not use you flashes across bodies?

    Does Canon doent this anywhere?

    in short: yep, manual only - provided you can set the flash manually
    that is.
     

    As above.
     

    Yes, in the specs for the digitals I believe they do say they only have
    E-TTL flash metering.

    With 550EX (and probably the other EX models also, but 550EX is the only
    one I've used) the situation is a bit better, you can use TTL mode for old
    cameras (type B). But thet's not good news if you already have an EZ.
