"Why Should I buy the SB 800?"



I have the SB 80dx and a D2X. I use a home-made diffuser made from foamies material which works better than others I have tried.
What would I gain by buying the 800 over my present setup?

iTTL and CLS add better performance and flexibility to the flash system that totally blow away what you can do with an 80DX. It's that simple, and that complicated.

Thanks JCA, that's exactly what I was afraid of <g>
Guess I will go ahead and do it because all the info I have found raves about the SB 800.
