D'you like your Sigma? D'you think it was a better choice than the Pentax flashes?

I'm debating whether to get the Sigma as against the 360 flash - don't really want to pay big bucks for the 540 but I would like a swivel head.

I'd be interested in your views.

John

I own a Sigma 500 DG Super. One advantage over the Pentax 360 is the swivel head (I believe the 360 only has a bounce head). The DG Super also has high speed sync capability which I find works well. If you are not interested in the high speed sync capability, I recommend the 500 DG (non Super) which is less expensive and is fully compatible with the Pentax digital SLRs. Both are significantly less expensive than the Pentax 540. Hope this helps. Jay

I've got a Samsung GX-1S (which I understand to be a Pentax istDS2 clone). Anyone any experience with that camera and the Sigma?
