I have an SB80DX. I just bought a D2X. Should I sell my SB80DX and buy the SB800? what are the advantages? I understand the bit about the 800 adjusting its color. What are the other reasons. I don't understand the big deal about "i-TTL".

I don't use a speedlight that much, because I mostly use tungsten lights, studio strobe, and a Norman 400B. But occaisionaly I get a grip and grin job that I can't really afford turn down. And I have wanted to be able to use a speedlight to lighten harsh shadows from the sun. In the past the max sync of my S2Pro was 1/125 of a second, thus preventing me from using it that much. But now with 1/250th of a second sync, I might use it more.

can you use the 800DX to open up the shadows of office workers under flourescent lights? does the 800DX balance itself to flourescents?
