Sigma EF 500 DG vs sigma EF 530 DG on 30D

Hi...

Two questions...

Will the sigma EF 500 DG ST work with my Canon 30D ?

And how does the EF 500 compare to the new EF 530

As always on a budget - I can pickup the 530 for about 119 - or buy a S/H 500 for less ?

Need Quick answer if possible as there is a 500 ending on ebay shortly...

Re: Sigma EF 500 DG vs sigma EF 530 DG on 30D

As far as I can see there is not that much difference between the EF 500 ST & the 530ST

You can get the EF 530 from PhotoSense for 109.99 and the EF 500 from UK Digital Cameras for 99.
Be careful on E-bay you don't pay over the odds & compare it to these prices I have guided before you get carried away.
Both of these models are very similar and if you don't require the remote slave trigger facility which the EF 500 Super & EF 530 Super gives then the alternative is a genuine Canon 430 EX may be a better choice if you can find one in your price range on either E Bay or Canon_UK site.
I hope this helps Regards Brian

There is a difference between the ST and the Super. I have the Super and it works fine on a 30D with full ETTL II compatibiltiy. Build quality isn't up to Canon but then I don't kick it around
