    Could anybody help me here?
    I want to buy a flash unit for my D70. Is the Sigma EF 500 SUPER DG as good
    as the Nilon SB800?
    Is it the equivelent of the Nikon? The reason I'm asking is that I cannot
    justify spending £300 on a flashgun even though I would prefer to buy the
    Nikon.

    I have the SIGMA EF-500 DG SUPER and look at what is printed over the LCD
    that shows your settings, it should also read: EF-500 DG SUUPER NA-iTTL.
    This is the very latest model that is FULLY functional with the D70. It is
    so new that when I visited B&H in NYC, the salesperson doubted that it would
    work, but when I showed him that extra print over the LCD and then proceded
    to shot a still of him he then believed me, plus he complimented SIGMA for
    being on top of the new protocales for the NIKON D-70.
    Rumour has it that the SIGMA produces more lite output. But unless you can
    do a side by side comparison and have at least a half to a full stop more
    power then it is only a rumour. I like the unit. Quantum is also on top of
    the situation and the same salesman said that the Quantum QB1+ the cable MVI
    will power the SIGMA flash for $236.00 us dollars.
    Have fun,
    Tom
