    Wanted to buy a flash for my Nikon F80, but have no experience on these TTL
    Any good reference for me to study or any user comment on these two
    products? I know 800 is better however budget is one of my concern...

    Does anyone has a suggestion? Thanks a lot!

    For a Nikon F80, you don't need D-TTL or i-TTL modes (present on the

    Do you need the wireless capabilities of the SB-800???

    Try looking an older mode; quoting from the F80 specs:

    "Flash control : Controlled by five-segment TTL Multi Sensor Automatic
    Balanced Fill-Flash with TTL Multi-Sensor: 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced
    Fill-Flash compatible with built-in Speedlight, SB-28, 27, 26, 25 and
    D-type Nikkor lens; Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash with built-in
    Speedlight or Speedlight such as SB-29, 28, 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22s, 22,
    20 and AF Nikkor other than D-type or AI-P Nikkor lens (except for the
    two AF Nikkor lenses designed for F3AF)"

    If money is not a problem, you can buy whatever you want, including the
    news SB-800 & SB-600, but in my opinion, they sound too much for the F80.

    If you are going to upgrade your camera you may want to consider the Nikon

    If you are looking for a flash that will work well with you F-80, consider
    the Sigma EF-500 Super. I been very pleased with it.

    Do you have some samples on the EF500 Super? It doesn't support i-TTL on
    D70 right?
