    The Sigma EG610 DG ST for Nikon has the quality and construction of a flash 3 times its price. I had a Vivitar DF-286 bounce flash and the casing was made of cheap thin-sounding plastic. But the Sigma is rock solid, and has a feeling of rubber-like coated casing. The Vivitar had LED lights that could be pushed in, but the Sigma's LED indicators are all recessed and encased inside. I've owned Nikon flashes before but I couldn't afford a Nikon flash right now but now that I got the Sigma, that's fine because this EF610 is just as good, if not better, than Nikon's flashes.

    Save yourself some time and just move on. I purchased 2 while they were on sale and I guess you get what you pay for. Manual is very confusing. Performance is horrible. Tried them as off camera flash for a shoot- could not get them to work with CLS- switched to manual power- Flash output inconsistent from shot to shot. Mis fired constantly. Sent them back today[...]

          Its a good flash but the output power range in manual is either full flash or 1/16. Wish it had more options but you can't ask much more for the price.

                Automatic mode works very well and manual with Bounce Diffuser or Mini Softbox gives excellent results. If you are shooting in automatic mode be prepared to wait for settings to lock in and it does misfire at times. Other than that I am enjoying the results for the price.

                During all my "photographic" life, I always preferred to use accessories of the same brand as the camera. I had (and still have a Canon EOS 7D), many different Canon cameras, and always had Canon Flash. This time, I decided to buy a different brand for two reasons: - much better price than a Nikon flash, and - Sigma has a reputation for good products. The only not so great about it, is that it is bulkier than the Nikon os Canon Flash.

                    This is a great and powerful flash. It is perfect for me as a first flash. It is very powerful, bright, and easy to use. The lens automatically determines the length of your lens. I thought this was a great feature as I am still learning photography.

                          Planned to use it off-camera but manual settings allow only full power or 1/16 power.

                          Disappointed of not being able to have full manual control. Product description unclear. Even the vendor was unsure until we unpacked one.

                                Comments about Sigma EF610 DG ST Flash for Nikon:

                                Save yourself some time and just move on. I purchased 2 while they were on sale and I guess you get what you pay for. Manual is very confusing. Performance is horrible. Tried them as off camera flash for a shoot- could not get them to work with CLS- switched to manual power- Flash output inconsistent from shot to shot. Mis fired constantly. Sent them back today[...]
