Planning to use with my D100 (Possibly D2 in future)
Is the SB-11 compatible with D100?

*Metz
Expensive - $900+
GN - 70

*Nikon
Cheaper - $600+??
GN - 118
Slow??? Recharging time - 8 sec (Using Battery Pack SD-8 will help? How fast?)
Uses 8 1.5V AA-type alkaline or NiCd.. (means my NiMH 1.2V cannot be used :( ???)

The guide number for the Metz is in meters while the Nikon is in feet. Quite a considerable difference to consider.:)

doubt it... it's not a DX flash. also, notice they never mention any D series caneras in the Nikon SG webpage.
