Sounds good. Many folks are also very happy with their Dimage D7's/A1 version... Same problem with the Minolta HS5600(D) flash which cost twice as much as the Sigma's!
What you'll find is when bouncing (wall/umbrella, etc) the higher GN of the Sigma actually helps and you'll be consigning the 420EX to more direct lighting! I've found it out from my Minolta days with their HS3400(D) which is their equivalent to the 420EX...
