Hi Nikon users, I'm thinking of getting a flash for my nikon D70, and hope to spend less than $400. I shoot mostly still-life, portraits and events. Should I get a Nikon SB600 or Sigma EF 500DG Super? Any advice please?

Get the SB600, no compatibility problem and a great flash with a great price.
If you can cough out a bit more than get te SB800.

Get the SB28DX... good enough and going for 200+ only max. You're using a D70... so i'm pretty sure there are no compatibility problems as my friends use them too. Ok Mr Quek? :devil:

There would not be automatic TTL functions if you use the SB28DX, you have to set it to aperture/manual mode and adjust accordingly. Of course it still works, but you would lost the convenience afforded by the SB-600/800
