Sigma Electronic Flash EF 500 DG Super

EF_500_DG_Super_Flash
Review Date: May 8, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $210.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: High power flash. Great Price.
Cons:
Needs a 45 degree tilt angle.

I have used this flash for the past year with no problems. I leave a Stofen Omnibounce mounted on it 95% of the time.
Bounced off a white ceiling with the Stofen and in TTL mode, you will get some outstanding photos.

I was browsing though the reviews here and don't relate to all the negative pounding about the build quality. If you handle it with care, this flash should last for many years. But, if you are the type to throw your camera with the hotshoe flash attached in the backseat of your car - then maybe consider another flash.

Pros: Pro build quality, Price, Great images past f4
Cons:
soft f2.8, tripod ring can't be removed, screw on hood

I bought this for financial reasons. At the time, I couldn't afford the pentax 80-200 f2.8 ($1200).
This lens has produced some nice photos on my Pentax ist DS.
I have to make sure I am at f4 or greater.
I would recommend this lens for a starter "pro look" zoom lens.
