I assume you are needing these as supplemental lights be be used via manual power mode and optically triggered by other lights. I looked at the Nissan at the PhotoPlus show (along with other even cheaper lights) and decided to go with used SB-80DXs. They can be had on ebay in the US for $100-$125. I used to shoot Nikon some time ago so I still remember the interface, and they just seem better built than the newer stuff. So while I didn't do any kind of a scientific test, it has worked out for me.
