Ok, I made ​​a mistake in my first post. The guide number does not change with 5 battery and remains at 22.9.

No one else has made a test with a flash meter ?

I just tried with an SB80DX (same GN as SB800?) and a Sekonic light meter.

At 35mm I read f22.7

At 105mm I read f32.4

I can't see much to be concerned about.

The guide number of the sb80dx is 38 !!!
