    Love them Berger Bros, too bad he didnt have a D700 body in stock, he did have D700 kits tho.

    I asked for 4 but he told me over the phone he only had 2 left, when i got there he walked out with all 4 for me. I got my shiney red bike!!

    They look terrific!

    Seeing those 4 SB-900's drives me crazy. I knew that I should have ordered more than two! At least they are on the way to me. Just a couple more days of waiting impatiently.

    My lonely SB-900 is in transit from Berger Brothers. Can't wait.

    You bought 4 boxes? :biggrin:

    A side by side of the 800 & 900 would be interesting.

    can SB900 take 5 AAbatteries with adapter ??
     
  15. Nope just the four, apparently there is no need for the fifth battery, from what I have read. Of course can I find that? Nah... :frown:

    Just take my word for it :wink:

    Sb-900

    The SB-900 specs seem pretty nice (well... really nice), but from the specs, its size and weight make it seem like a monster.

    Can anyone comment on how it handles & feels compared to the SB-800?
     
  18. Uh- okay.
