Sigma EF-500 Super. About $200, and almost the same functions as the 580EX.

The EF-500 ST is even cheaper, but lacks some of the features of the Super version.

I have a couple Sigma Supers and I think they're a good value.
Whether they are right for you depends on several things.

It would help if you shared why you want a "non-Canon" flash, what your budget is, and what kinds of shooting you plan to do with it.

Ok,
Gouba, I don't use enough to justify the Canon premium price.

CurtisN, I am getting ready for one family wedding photo shoot. It will be indoors with florescent lighting. So, I can part with about $150 for this special occasion.

Which site is a good vendor for this? There are only 2 questionable stores I can find on the web!!!
Thanks for your help.

I have the Sigma Super and I like it alot, just wish it had a battery indicator on it so you know when they are getting low...

Not sure if any of them do..

For about $150 you can get a Sigma EF-500 DG ST, which has plenty of power and all the capability you'll need for on-camera use at an indoor wedding.

For retailers, try B&H or sigma4less.com
