    Default Flash....Sigma, Sunpak, Mertz???

    hi friends,

    I am looking for a good flash for my Nikon F-65. I do not have the budget for a SB-80DX...cause i want to invest in a Nikkor D lens. So i am in a bit of budget constraint here.

    can someone give me an opinion on Sigma EF-500 Super, Sunpak 4000 or Mertz flash...?? This flash is to help me to do a better indoor photography ie. hotel ballroom - yellowish light, function room, someone's living room or bedroom etc...

    Thanks in advance.

    How about getting a 2nd hand Nikon flash? You should be able to find one easily.

    You won't regret getting a SB series Nikon flash. It can still be used if you upgrade to another SLR (except the D-series DSLRs which require the SBxxDX flashes).

    A used SB28 should cost less than $350, and the older but just as capable models like the 25 and 26 should be even lesser. Worth every penny.
