    For a 3rd party, Nissin seems good based on its specs.
    Like what Lucas mentioned, it can compete with the 430EXII based on specs alone.
    And since it has master/slave feature, seems to me to be a value-for-money buy.
    I'm not sure how well the ETTL works though. Have to buy to know. Or can try before you buy.
    Because some 3rd party flashes don't seem to be 100% ETTL-compatible, thus you lose out FEC and stuff like that.

    I've been using a 3rd party for some time, Sunpak PZ42x.
    It lacks the master/slave feature but it has served me well on the occasions that I use it.
    And I've never/seldom used full power. The most I go to is 1/2 power. Faster recharge times.

    Yeah! Both buy the 622 also can. It can be master/slave.

    There's no 1Ds MK II.

    There's only 1Ds MK III which cost $12k just for the body itself. Enjoy.

    For those of you looking to use the raynox as an alternative macro lens .. just bare one thing in mind. the raynox dcr-250,dcr-150 are technically close-up filters. in other words .. you can get the same effect if you put a magnifying glass in front of your lens BUT the raynox is very high optical quality. You loose focus at infinity when you put a close-up diopter (or an extension tube or reverse macro). This means you can focus up close but not objects at a distance anymore. the raynox is not a replacement for a dedicated macro lens really. i occasionally use the tamron 90mm macro f/2.8 for 'potraits' and candids when i am outdoors or have enough distance and it works well. raynox is a good choice if you dun actually wanna get another lens but want to take the occasional macro. it is a good choice if you wanna get into macro but dun wanna dump a lot of money on a dedicated lens and risk selling it at a loss if you dont get into it.

    havig said that .. if you check the macro thread on clubsnap, you can find some really good macro photographers using a 50mm with a raynox almost exclusively.

    Haslan: not sure if you need a macro lens for food leh .. for food shots normally you set the shot up so you can control the distance lighting etc. I would go for the sharpest and most vibrant lens that is in your arsenal and set up the shot as you see fit. Using a raynox for food photography will limit your shots to just the fishball in a bowl of fishball noodles for example since you might not be able to focus if you try to pull out of the shot to get the whole bowl in frame.

    dunno .. my 2 cents ..

    I think the kit lens makes for a very nice lens to do the reversed lens technique .. especially when you go to 18mm!!!

    P.S. remember in reversed lens .. you get MORE magnification at LOWER focal length.

    this is soo true. i tot its tcss when u put 50mm in reverse. but i saw pictures taken with reverse 50mm and wow, i didnt believe it. so what happen when you dont believe it? TRY IT ON YOUR OWN. i bought the adapter and gosh, its been stunning la! but its a pain in the ass lah coz need to focus manually but moving back and forth. hahaa.

    get the tammy 90mm. i heard good reviews about it. and anyway NO ONE ELSE GOING FOR THE OUTING TO MARINA BARRAGE??
