    ZOMG!

    Sorry guys not another what camera should I get thread nor a nikon is better then canon thread. Sorry!

    I was just cruisin and browsing the web and I stumbled upon a new Nikon SB-700. I know right, I mean they decide to discontinue the SB-800 yet they release the "new"? SB-700. I don't know if this has been out there a long time or if the hype isn't as high as the "D7000" or whatever everybody is freaking out about. All I know is that it's new to me. I was very interested in this since it's only $100.00 CDN more then the SB-600 which is significantly cheaper then the SB-900.
    The specs on this guy aren't much different then the SB-900, I would really like to see what other nikon users think of this "new" release and if they think it's worth it.

    the guide number is less than the SB-600, (barely) but it has commander mode...

    On paper, it doesn't really seem super great. It's not as powerful as the 600, has the lousy dot-matrix interface, the only thing that's better is the commander mode and the head can zoom in a little more.

    other than that, get an sb 600
