5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent power and easy to use

Cons: Over heat sensor will shut it down, but I guess that's better than burning it out. Plus it's pretty big compared to the SB-700.

5 out of 5 eggsLike it

Pros: Excellent! Work great with Nikon DSLR, can set the flash as wireless module and built-in DSLR as master. Also, work with certain Nikon point-and-shoot cameras. I have both D7000 and N65, it works great on both.

Cons: A bit noisy on the flash servo. Nikon should use the AF-s lens servo instead.

Other Thoughts: Wish I have more $$$ to get two more. And, thx newegg! Fast shipping and low price.
