    3) its TTL function,

    this is a little OT but maybe will be relevant

    i purchased a sigma (for former company) similar to your stated model, but the nikon model. i found the flash contacts didn't fit the camera contacts very well. sometimes caused flash failure.

    i also bought the 420EX (for former company) and it's well-made and capable, though it may have a lower guide no.

    if it were my choice, i'd go for the canon as sigma build doesn't seem precise enough. but others may not have had any problems...

    i also got similar problem with sigma 500 super (canon mount), so does few other friends who got this flash.

    i also got a canon 420ex last time, but without manual control really inflexible

    since the price for used 550ex has gone down with the introduction of 580ex, u should consider an used 550ex instead

    only 1 reason why i sell my sigma 500DG super last year, i use it for slave and receiving angle from this 500DG is not as good as 550EX.

    thats all, other than that, it function similar like 550EX, very good flash!
