I think that my logic is that the K10D really should have a good
flash attached, the 540 and 360 are about as good as it gets and
everything else is less.

Some people may be happy with a basic flash. There's little point
in spending hundreds of bucks, if all you need is a bounce flash
for the annual Thanksgiving family shot.
Of course a 540 at 360 Euros is "better" than a Soligor/Digital
Concept flash at 100 Euros, but some people might even be happy
with a used 20 Euro Braun flash.

Bit like buying lenses, I have a 18-55 but
it is not as good as my 16-45 but is better than my Sigma 18-50 in
several key areas,

You have three lenses covering that focal range?!

Yes.

I have a Sigma DG 500 Super and it is pretty good but I have
ordered a 360

...without swivel...

Yes, something I rarely use, I find a StoFen diffuser does all I need.

because some things just do not work as well as the
real thing.

We'll be looking forward to your post describing the differences in
performance of those two flashes. (No Sarcasm intended.)

Wireless is the driver here and dual flash for macro work.
