The flash is supposed to be about $150 and the lens $600. No way I'll ever buy it for that price.

Yeah that little flash would be great for a light travel kit.
What does it do that the SB-400 doesn't?

Aside from being slightly weaker, use AAA instead of AA batteries and cost $30 more?

I don't see the point of it either. I was hoping for a slightly more powerful SB-400 as there is nothing between the 400 and the 700. The SB-700 replaced the 600 so I was expecting a replacement for the 400 rather than a smaller, weaker brother.

Booooooo
I was hoping for stronger sb400... I hate the size of the sb600 let alone the sb900..... I like a large body but prefer a small flash... maybe I'm just weird lol

Thanks Counter. Like the others, I'm thinking ... "So, why?"
It retails for $30 more, so there's Nikon's "why"

There's still a theoretical option for an SB 500 though, as they didn't name it such. Who knows?

As for the articulating screen on the coolpix: now that the digital compact is as good as dead, Nikon finally seemed to have figured out how to design proper compacts, given what they've come up with lately.
