    Default SB-900 or SB-700 on D700?

    I wish to get a external flash for my D700,
    was wondering which one to get...
    the SB-700 seem nice enough to me,
    and hence it is cheaper too

    but I heard that if I choose SB-700,
    the flash coverage can caused vignetting on picture,
    so anyone using SB-700 on nikon FF camera?
    can share with your experience?thanks ya!

    i dont really get what you mean by getting vignetting using SB-700. i dont get that even using the D700 built-in flash..

    SB900 or SB700 depending on the power and throw distance, also if you can handle and except the weight and size. i only used SB900 so thats my 2cts.

    less power, no high tech features BUT less weight, essentials, still a pro flash, sb 700

    SB-700 is a dummy flash. Dun get me wrong, dummy is not becos it has limited features but becos it does most of the hard work intelligently for you. It's definitely a great flash. So far the only thing it misses out from SB-900 is the repeating flash mode, longer flash zoom and lesser max flash power.

    that onli happens when u shoot at angles wider than the flash's widest angle of coverage in the spec sheet.
    Google is your friend. Make use of it.

    In another word, you are saying that the SB700 is for dummies, lol.

    Haha, then I'm a dummy too. I own a copy. Currently pass it to my GF for her favorite type of photoshoot.

    It's a great flash for masters and dummies like me
