Non-TTL does not necessarily make things more difficult. But full manual flash is a bit more troublesome. TTL is only available for those DX series flashes....

How much is the 28DX?

Eh, where did you read that from? Even my F100 doesn't have MLU. :(

See the custom functions, there's an Anti Mirror Shock mode! Just like the one in the D1 series!

But are DX flashes compatible with D100?

If I am not wrong, the D100 NEEDS DX flashes. The regular SB22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 won't work. Only the 28DX, 50DX, 80DX etc will. Time to spend more money. :(

It doesn't "need" them except for TTL, you can use any ordinary flash unit on it without TTL.

That's using the flash's sensor. Easily fooled, but can get around with some experience. But I've been TTL-pampered ever since I got my F100.... :p Nikon's TTL is so darned good.
