    What do you guys think of that. It is $150, compared to $200 for the SB600 and $300 for the SB800. I mainly wanted an external flash because of the ability to bounce off of things and because I needed something more powerful than the dinky built-in light.

    I know the SB800 has a lot more features...but I dont know if I would ever take advantage of them. :confused:

    Any thoughts? Opinions? Exeriences you would like to share? :o

    Make sure you get a SUPER. It has a LCD on the back which helps a lot since the Sigma is one of the hardest to control flahses (bad button layout/usage). It can act as a master/slave to other flashes. Some other stuff.
