Aftermarket Flashes - Photography

Hi, Anyone have some links to buy aftermarket (Sigma, Metz, etc) flashes which support Canon E-TTL? Inside Australia preferably. Can't seem to find anything except the genuine SpeedLites, and a few Sigmas for other brands. Cheers, Matt...

    Yup. That's what I use with my 10D and EOS 33, with excellent results!
    Wouldn't buy an EX flash again. (I used to have the 420EX and used a
    550EX for some weeks as well).

    The Sigma EF-500 super does what you want. There are also Metz flashes that
    do E-TTL like the 54MZ-3i. It's true that there doesn't seem to be much
    info on-line but your local (or mail order) dealer should be able to help
    you out.

    What differences did you find between the 550EX and the 54MZ3? Why do you
    prefer the Metz? I own a 54MZ3 but have never used the 550EX.

    My 54MZ-3 works as well in E-TTL as any EX flashes that I have used.
    The Metz also provides a softer, warmer light without a diffuser,
    where the Canon flashes provide harsh, white-blue light. You NEED a
    diffuser with the Canon flashes, the Metz can be used without one.

    The differences aren't night and day, but enough of a difference to
    notice! What's more, the Metz is MUCH cheaper locally than the Canon
    550EX, made my decision a hell of a lot easier!

    .... and the Metz offers Auto (thyristor) mode! While E-TTL works well
    in most situations, this is very handy to have for those occasions
    when you need to use flash and don't want to think about it too
    much... :-)

    Cheers,

    Rudi
