Should I go TTL or Manual w/Lightmeter?

Does Nikon iTTL let you wirelessly control flash power levels?

I don't know if the Nikon system can do this, but one of the bonuses of the Canon eTTL2 system is that I can control remote flash mode and the power of the flashes remotely from a in camera menu- pretty cool I don't have to be drop-raising light stands+modifiers.

eTTL + ratios + FEC or switch them to manual and set each group individually - all via the camera menu. The less expensive flashes without wireless TTL control can't do this - raise-lower light stands to get to the settings.

My 3 Canon EX speedlights allow me to use two bodies with flashes installed and have one spare in the bag.

I'd check if the iTTL system can do this sort of thing, for you it may be worth the extra cost if it can.
