I got a paying photography gig and hadn’t upgraded my flash system since I bought My Nikon D-100 last year. I was going to go for the SB-800 at that time but it was a pretty spendy and I didn’t have a real need for it. Today when I went to buy one at Amazon I noticed the SB-600. Seems to be just the ticket for this job and most others I am likely to do for the foreseeable future. Just slightly less power, faster recycle time and lighter. All good things. If I do deceide to get the SB-800 at a later date this will work nicely as a slave unit so I think it was the right flash at this time. I’ll keep you posted!
