I just got a "new" F100, and now I'm thinking about picking up a flash. Which of these would be better (and why), and about how much would I expect to pay for one in very good condition?

Just curious...will the SB-400 work on this old camera?

The SB-26 predated the camera a little, but it ought to work well. The SB-28 was the one "made for it", so to speak. If you have a SB-600 or SB-800, they are backwards compatible too, and film TTL should work fine.

But not the SB-400, it only does iTTL with iTTL cameras. And not the SB-900, Nikon abandoned backwards compatibilty then.

Thanks Wayne. I'd hoped you'd be the one to answer.

I think I'll pick up a used SB-28, as I'll be using my film body in places that I wouldn't want to risk my more expensive gear.
