Default flash

my sigma EF-530 DG. Gave up the ghost on me ,it would be 3-4 year old.
my camera mate says throw it in the bin.
so am looking for a recommendation for a new one.
the work is photography in ships. have several Nikon cameras for the job
my go to camera is usually D3100 WITH A Sigma 10-29 1.4-5.6 lense.
this outfit has done a lot of work, I think it must be 3-4 year old but never failed me except for flat battery.
does any one have any ideas for a similar unit.

Is this similar?

http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-EF-610-E...ds=sigma+flash

There is a lower cost version listed for $135, but I can't tell what the difference is.

The lower cost version without the 'Super' does not have the wireless feature nor modeling light modes

I also recommend the Nissin... They are the Far East Metz equivalent for flashes...
