Anyone with experience with both or either shed some "light" on the comparison? And why did you get the ring flash vs. the double-flash? What are the advantages and disadvantages of one over the other?

I have the sigma (which is for sale btw). I used it for a few shots (portrait wise). The flash works great, and if you have a 500 Super flash you can wiressly trigger it from the EM-140 ring flash. I have no experience with the Canon. I chose the Sigma over the canon due to price.

You may also want to go to the macro forum where there are possibly more humans that have used both of the flash units your desire info on.

Enjoy! Lon
