    Hey guys, im back and better than ever! lol. Well i finally decided on which flash to purchase and it seemed the sigma 530 was the right choice. The sigma had the most power for the money and seemed to have good reviews. Does anyone own one and if so how is you experiance with it?

    For $100 less than the 430ex and having more power it seemed to be the best choice. Only downfall is manual control is limited. It will be fine for me! Hopefully.

    I have the pentax model of the Sigma 530 DG Super. If I had it to do over, I would've spent the extra cash and got the Pentax 540 that I wanted in the first place. The Sigma does a decent job though. The main problem I have with it is inconsistent performance when I use it off camera in the P-TTL mode which I don't do very often. My issues w/ it in that manner may be user error since I don't use it very often like that. Anyway, it's decent and get's the job done.
