Re: FLASH Question...
I'm not sure the exact price in SG but in HK, the ST version is 900 HKD and the Super is 1.8K HKD. Which should be around 160SGD and 310SGD respectively.

The only problem would be the recharging time and inconsistent flash. However, if you are in tight budget, you won't have a choice. Not everyone have the ability to afford a 580 as a start (including myself).
I did sell away my 500 Super and now upgraded to 580. But that was after 2 years of using it.
The idea here is, while you are saving up for the bigger gun, you can enjoy flash photography and start learning. Then you would appreciate the more powerful flash later on.
