    Hi. I want to buy a flash for my equipment. See what I got in my signature and maybe you would suggest what to buy. I was considering SB-800 or new SB-900, since SB-800 isn't much cheaper that new SB-900 (for now). I also like that SB-900 covers wider range of focal lengths, so I guess that it would be more useful for my 70-300 lens.

    But please post what you think would be the best for me. I was also considering buying lens, not flash - Nikkor 50/1.8, but built-in flash sucks for me...
     
  2. Look for a used Sb-800. You can find them around 275. That is a great price. Sb-900 is a little high right now since it is new. You don't get THAT much more compared to a sb-800.

    I only want to buy new, not used. I don't buy used equipment anymore, since little incident...
     
  4. Buy an SB-800 they're still for sale some places.
