    sorry, don't know anything about the Sigma. I went from a Canon 420EX to the 580EX and it made a huge difference in image quality w/ the flash.

    Here's a shot I took over the weekend; shitty pic but the lighting from the flash turned out nice

    i thought about it b/c that basically runs the flash on its own. no need to adjust anything :mamoru:

    i honstly dont mind the ui. i guess i'm used to it, its just what setting to put it on that bothers me. i know that p,tv,av meter as if there isnt a flash attached but in full manual i have a hard time gauging the shutter speed. its only complicated even more when i add in the flash settings. i usually leave it in ettl with fp but normally anything above a 250 shutter turns out too dark (practicing in my room anyway).
