    If you haven't already - SB910! I have the SB-900 and it regularly overheats just when you need it, my second photog has the 910 and he never gets this problem.

    I used an SB900 for a bit but it was so dang big and heavy that I wound up using my backup SB700 all the time now! Just a thought that could save you a couple hundred bucks since the 700 goes for ~$250 used now...

    Thanks, picked up a like new SB900 for $290. I am aware of the over heating issue, but I am not a pro and won't be using it that much at any one time on full power so I don't think that will be an issue.
