    are you talking about the SU-800?

    i'm not so sure but i don't think there are other alternatives for infra-red commanders...i would recommend the sb-800/900.

    if you are looking for Nikon CLS enable commander for your D5000..

    you can only use SB800, SB900, SU800 or a Metz 58 AF-1N

    Thanks guys for your helpfull info.. since SB 900 is way too big for a body of D5K, i'll consider SB 800 then.

    they're about the same size, really. I would consider the size difference to be negligible.

    Nissin also claims to have CLS commander ability with their Di866 top-of-the-range flash unit.
    I think it should work fine, judging from the reviews so far.
    I'm waiting till I really need an extra flash, before I splash out on the Nissin.
    Exploring! :)
