    From a quick look, they are fairly similar but also have their differences. The Sigma is a ring flash, so it covers all angles for a flat even light. The Nikon is a set of two side lights.

    The Nikon kit is wireless, the Sigma has a module that goes onto the hotshoe.

    They both support i-TTL, so that's not an issue.

    It looks like the Nikon is a 'kit' that has two of the SB-R200 heads. It says that you could add more of those heads to the system. It could also be integrated into a multiple Nikon flash system...and all that Jazz.

    The Nikon system seems very versatile...but if the Sigma can do the job, that might be all that you need.
