Re: easy question... easy answer

Although the SB800 is a fine flash for most purposes except for heavy duty frequent blasting because it melts the circuit board, buying a used one (or any flash for that matter) is problematic.

There is no equivalent of shutter actuation measures with a flash, a heavily abused flash on its last legs could look the same as a new one.

I would only buy a used one if you knew the history of the flash for sure.
