Went to this shop at Penisula Plaza and was asking him about the cannon 580 EX II. The owner was telling me why spend so much on the flash when sigma got a better one at half the price. The model i forget which one liao but I remember he told me the sigma throw can reach 53 meter.
Theres another thing he said that makes me feel uncomfortable especially when i already decided to get 580EX II. He said Sigma flash is Made In Japan and showed me the words emboss on the flash itself. And continue to tell me that the Canon one is not, dunnoe from where i forget.
I wonder how true is this. But put the manufacturing country aside. Which flash actually is better? Feature wise?
I have a feel of both and definetly the 580Ex II feels better but strangely i didnt see the Made In Japan on the 580Ex II.
Anyone give some thoughts on which flash should i opt for?
