    Keep the SB28, you can do wonders with that for secondary light source...

    Might as well wait for the SB900 dude.

    The sb28 works for me but sometimes it's hard to manually adjust the strength of the flash specially during weddings. It works but it's hard. Hehe. And no CLS.

    I have heard of using the SB28 off cam but are these available locally (e.g. pocket wizard / gadget infinity / etc.)

    The SB900? I think so too. Costs more than the 800 though.

    Don't quite agree to this. The pop-up's main shortcoming is the distance it can cover. Most pop-up flash can be controlled and it does NOT lock the shutter speed unless you're in P and auto/scene modes, which locks at 1/60.
    I stand corrected. That happens from time to time, part of the learning process

    What I should have written was 'limited to max flash x-sync speed', and that may be slow enough to overexpose a bright background. But as you and others have shown in the other informative thread, that can be controlled.

    Thanks for pointing it out
