If the rating is correct, that would put it beyond the SB800 by quite a bit.

Ran some further tests tonight, and it definitely puts out more light than the SB800...but not a lot more.  It scatters the light more, so it is a difficult comparison.  With the supplied reflector it provides a beam width somewhere close to the Nikon's 35mm setting...but not close enough to compare directly.

I'll post pictures when I can get them set up more consistently (ie. camera mounted on tripod...light on light stand.)

How about putting both into softboxes or umbrellas to test output? That'll minimize the impact of the beam-spread difference. I'd be very interested to know just how big the difference is.
