The Nikon sb600 or the SIgma 500super on a D50...

I am stuck between these two, also the Sigma 500 STDG(?)...

I was looking for any info on these flashes that you guys use on the D50 only...
I really don't want to spend a ton on one and I can't see $300!
I can get the Nikon 600 for a bit over $195 + shp. or the Sigma for $220 + shp.

I have seen many posts on this, but nothing really aimed at real thoughts by actual users with the D50. (Probably missed em)

Any info or opinion is appreciated

Thanks,
Gary

I'm using the Sigma DG Super on a D70.
I wanted an SB800 but it was too expensive. The Sigma appears to offer most of the features of the SB800.
Having used the Sb600 & the Sigma I prefer the handling & controls of the Sigma. It is also more powerful and has better features than the SB600.
So far it works very well and I also managed to used the Sigma & SB600 together using wireless remote.
Incidentally I found the Sigma to be cheaper than the SB600 as well...
