Anyone own an SB600 and SB700. Question about flashhead dimensions.

Hi there. I have 3 flashguns. 1 x SB900, 1 x SB700, and 1 x Metz 58 AF1.

Some time ago I purchased a lightsphere for the SB900 (cheap Gary Fong copy). Having used the lightsphere for some extensive portrait work, I can only say that I love it.

I would like to get one for the Metz and SB700, but the online dealer has a limited stock, in various fits.

The lightsphere for the SB900 also fits the Metz, and they have that in stock, so I will buy one. That just leaves the SB700.
They do not list a lightsphere for the SB700 but they stock one for the SB600.

I did wonder if the two flashheads would be so similar in size that I could purchase the SB600 lightsphere and use it on the SB700?.
Anyone able to confirm if the reflector dimensions are similar?.

p.s. I did ask the dealer for advice but they would not/could not confirm anything.
