Yesterday I got an e-mail from Sigma about their EF-500 series flashes and using it on a D1 series camera. They told me that the flash is fully compatible with the D-TTL system of the D1 and that ti will work like a SB-28DX, 50DX, and 80DX. Now, if you want a cheap flash, ie. $130, you can get the EF-500 ST.

Now, is Sigma's tech support really know what they're talking about, or is this true? I don't have a D1 yet, but i'd like to your opinions. I have the EF-500 for my N70, but as I venture into digital, this would be a great deal.
