Re: SB-800 is worth the slight price difference

If there was a significant difference in price (like there is
between, say, the 85mm f/1.4 and 85mm f/1.8) then sweating the
differences between the two flashes might be worth your time. Since
the difference is so slight, I think the SB-800 is worth it. I
probably don't need the extra power for most of my flash shots, but
there have been times when I needed all the flash power I could
get. And I never really use the 5th battery. I use the diffusion
dome and the wink card all the time though. I also use the filters
when it occurs to me to do so.

You won't go wrong with either one. The 800 costs about $100 more and is worth about $100 more. If you use flash a lot and can afford the 800 get it. If money is really tight, the 600 is still great.
