dear canon-eers

has anyone used the sigma 530dg flash with thier rebel xsi or similar cameras?
if so how does it perform?
i am looking into getting one as the price is significantly cheaper than the canon 580ex
Any thoughts and opinions are welcome

I have the 530DG and really like it. See thread below on it and others.

You might want to post in Flash forum instead.

I have the older 500DG Super, but I wouldn't buy Sigma again, I'd save up a bit longer and go for the Canon 580.

Having said that, the few times I have used it on my 5D it seems to work much better than it ever did with my 20D. No idea why. Probably user error when I was starting out.

To anth
Thanks for your response. I did get the idea from the other post but i guess i posted in here by mistake. i went to 'epinions' and the reviews were pretty good. Gotta make up me mind.

To peri
Thanks for your response. I will do some research before buying.

Pete
