    Nikon SB-400 has served my very well, otherwise the SB-600 if you can swing it.

    Most people would get the SB-600 if given a choice, and that's the route I went first as well. In fact I got two of them... then got an SB-400, lower power, no swivel and smaller.

    I hardly ever used the SB-600's again, so I sold them.

    For me, the SB-400 is 95% of what I need in a flash - but most of my shots are around the house.
