Speedlite 380EX for Canon Digital Rebel - Photography

I just got a Digital Rebel and am using it instead of my Canon Elan II. I have a Canon Speedlite 380EX for my Elan II and it appears to work fine with the Digital Rebel but someone at a camera store told me I should get new flash that was better suited for the Digital Rebel. Is this just someone trying to sell something I don't really need or this is there a good reason to update my flash? Thanks....

    Yeah, sounds like salesmanship. EX speedlites is EX speedlights as
    far as i know.

    You're lucky, I had an Elan with 540EZ flash and had to buy the
    550EX. :-\

    If the 380 lacks any features you really want (like bounce, bigger
    guide numbers, or the ability to play with flash exposure compensation
    on the flash since stock rebel firmware lacks this control on-camera),
    then consider updating, but no just for the "digtalness."
