    Thanks to the strobist site, SB-24 to SB-80s are much harder to find. If you do find them, they are overpriced and used HARD and a LOT.

    I thought about it, but in the end, decided to get 2 new SB-600s and I could not be happier. I also just may get 2 more SB-600s in the future. I am just that happy with them!

    As far as triggers go, I decided to get the Gadget Infinity triggers. I am getting 5 receivers and 1 trigger DELIVERED for less than the price of a single Pocket Wizard. If I need more, I will get the Radio Poppers. As soon as the transmitter is out of the box, I plan to test range, then do the antenna mod and test range again. Many people are claiming 150-200 foot ranges, wich is WAY more than I could ever envision myself ever needing. I also plan on doing the AA battery mod on all receivers.

    I got a used Nikon SB28 from Adorama with the box and case for less than $100 about 2 months ago, but now all of them at Adorama are over $100 without any accessories.

    I was told they are not as good as the 24's? And they dont hold value.

    But you can get them. And are you really going to sell any of your equipment?

    You might look into a Metz as well.
