If your budget allows, I would suggest adding the SB-800.
Standardizing on one piece of equipment just makes things easier.
The SB-600 of course works with the SB-800, but its controls are
different enough to be annoying, but maybe the lower price makes
this an acceptable trade-off.

If you go with the Vivitar (which I have never used), you are going
to want to check to see whether it is going to be triggered by the
SB-800 preflashes. If so, you'll be forced to use the SB-800's in
M mode (which does not use a preflash).


I have a SB800 and the old SB28 and SB24, do I need another SB800? Thanks
