Just ordered a 430EX Speedlite.... 2nd thoughts!

Hi All,

I know this has been discussed befor, but searching doesn't work at the moment.

I have just ordered a Speedlite 430EX on the spur of the moment - got a good price online.

My question is, should I have rather gotten the Sigma EF 500 DG Super for a bit more money? (The 580EX is waaayyy out of my budget!).

As far as I can tell, the only advantage to the Sigma (apart from more power) is the strobe or pulse feature - how useful is this? Are there other features I might miss?

Any help / advice will be appreciated...
