Sigma EF 500 DG Super. I bought one for my Digital Rebel, and continue
to use it on my 30D.

Palfrey was allowed Friday to
give her client list to the
press. Lawmakers on Capitol
Hill are said to be terrified.
Let's hope the voters in South
Carolina and Oklahoma appreciate
all the fear because they may
be the last two states in the
union where a hooker scandal
could hurt the candidate.

My dad is using his Rebel with a Vivitar 283, but he needed some adapter(s).

Does the Sigma support the E-TTL II standard utilized by the 30D?

Any E-TTL capable flash is also E-TTL II capable, the differences
are in the camera firmware.

As I recall, if you look in the Metz website, you have to have a newer
adapter module for their E-TTL flash (the particular model which I
have) if you are using it with the 30D. I have a D60, and it the E-
TTL-capable Metz flash is compatible with it but not with my newer 30D
- I've confirmed that both in practice and with the Metz website. The
Metz adapter module for the D60 I use is not forward-compatible to the
newer standard.
