Canon Speedlite 580EX II

Review Date: Feb 9, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Superb build quality. Outstanding performance.
Cons:
None.

I purchased the Canon as an upgrade from my Sigma EF-500 DG Super flashgun. The difference in quality between the two units is immense with the Canon in a totally different league: it is a solidly built unit that immediately inspires confidence whereas the Sigma is flimsy by comparison. It delivers an outstanding performance with highly accurate illumination. It has everything that I need in a flashgun and then some. I'll be keeping the Sigma as a back up and will be using it as a slave from time to time to the Canon master - I was particularly pleased to find that the master/slave relationship works between the two guns.
