I am reviving this thread as I have not gotten a response from Nikon Support. Has anyone else? It's frustrating that a faster lens can't be used to advantage with the weak flash.

Hi Paul,

Stumbled onto this VERY old thread today, and evidently my V1 behaves excellently, as I have no such problems, as long as I keep the ISO low enough to avoid overexposure!!! And my flash is set to -0.7!

Same result with my V2, as well!

Tried with, and without, a flash card attached to the flash.

Did you shoot an identical scene with the 18.5 wide open and the 10-30 wide open with the SB-N5 and compare them?
