Nikon will soon be announcing a SB???? version of Canon's radio capable 600EX-RT flash unit which is excellend from what I have read. When that happens the writing will be on the wall for these expensive aftermarket add-ons. When you consider the price of these units and the price of the new Canon flash unit at $549 there's no point is spending the money on PWs etc when you can just sell you existing flash units and upgrade to the newer one and not have all that added complexity for add-ons.

-What have you read about a Nikon radio SB???--I'd like to read it too!

-Whether the writing would be on the wall would depend a lot on price and performance (stating the obvious, yes.) At Canon's $600 per speedli(gh)t(e) and $320 for a (bigger/clunkier) transmitter, you're only about $200 below two SB910s + PW TT1 & two TT5s, with considerably less range. The more flashes you add the more savings you get, but how many flashes need the radio control?
