It depends on what you want to accomplish and what photography you do.
Consider Guide Numbers: the SB-28 speedlight has a GN of 138 (at 50mm, in feet); the SB-50DX has a GN of 72 (feet) at ISO 100 when used as accessory. Guide Number of 82 (feet) when used in combination with the built-in speedlight on a N65 or a N80.
On the other hand, the SB-50DX provides the flexibility of a slave. The SB-28 has to be used either with an off-camera cord or on a SU-4 control unit for creative lighting or on an alternative non-OEM slave unit.
Prices: SB-28 $310 (USA), $275 (Imported)
SB-50DX $180 (USA), $160 (Imported).
Have a great time
