      Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG Super Flash for Pentax Cameras:

      I purchased three of these flashes. They will be used for evrything I need to use a flash for.

      Sigma did a great job with these flashes, B&H did their usual great job with service.

      Only issue was with the learning curve due to sparse maunals,

        Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG Super Flash for Pentax Cameras:

        The missing star has nothing to do with the flash. It is works with my K3 just as I expected. My only issue is with the documentation/manual. It took me about 4 hours to figure out how to make this flash work off camera.

        Other than the sparce menual and learning curve, this flash is worth every penny.

          Used for: outdoor Fill, portrait, anything that requires extra light.

          Things that are great: I'm just getting started using this thing, it provides great exposures when set to bounce in conjunction with my Pentax K3.

          I"m still learning, but initially it's worked great without me doing anyting but putting batteries in it and turning it on.

            Works great, a little larger than I expected. The only improvement I would make is to have belt loops on the case so it can hang on the camera bag strap. I will sew some on it anyway to make it easier to carry

                Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG Super Flash for Pentax Cameras:

                This is my first external flash unit and I use it in an amateur capacity.

                Pros:
                External texture is rubbery but smooth.
                Auto function works well and exposure looks perfect to my eye.
                White card and wide angle flip down work well as long as you don't get in a hurry.
                Recharge is quick and silent to my ear.
                Communicates perfectly with my camera.

                Cons:
                The manual does not cover half of what appears on the led screen and never leads you through any kind of set up. Everything I have learned I learned by experimentation.
                Battery door is a little catchy but not flimsy, not much of a con really.
                Unit is a little large but I don't really care.

                I am very excited about this unit and can't wait to give it an extensive workout in wireless and slave mode.

                Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG Super Flash for Pentax Cameras:

                I expect to be using this flash, on camera, off camera, (wireless) P-TTL and manual. I can't pack multiple flash units when I am on the go, so I need as many options as I might need in one flash unit. At the same time, I have to watch my expenses too.

                If you will only use one or two of the functions available in this unit, save some money and buy a simpler flash.

                Given the number of options, it is understandable that the user needs to take some time to learn and practice BEFORE you go for that award winning photo. You do have to use BOTH your Pentax digital camera's and the Sigma's manual together to understand and implement some of the options. But the time is well spent.

                My only concern is this flash is larger than my older bounce flash, and does not fit as nicely in my field bag. Yes, the flash comes with a decent case of its own, but there is no way to put this case in my field bag, or even safely strap it outside my field bag. The included table stand with its tripod socket is a nice touch for using the flash off camera and can usually be tucked into any camera bag. Sigma's case even has a pocket for it.

                  Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG Super Flash for Pentax Cameras:

                  I use it for everything. It is my 5th sigma flash and I often use this one connected to two others. I added this one because it has extra punch for bounce flash and when it is on my 500mm lens. Works well on all my pentax SLRs from K10 - K5

                  The buttons are small and fiddly, but I find that I can connect to what I want to do. It gives reliable results and I like the manual over ride as I prefer manual settings when i use flash.

                  I use flashes outdoors and give my flash guns a hiding so I don't want to spend a fortune.

                  the new model is more powerful, and I find this quite noticeable and there is a small white reflector card that can be pulled out of the head which is extremely useful.

                  I have a less featured sigma flash (work very well, only purchased while i was away as I smashed my other flash when I fell down a slope) but I would recommend a full featured flash unless you never want to make any adjustments.
