I have a F80 and a SB-22s speedlight. I would like to get the flash of the camera. As far as I have understood there is two ways of doing this, either get the SC-17 cord or the wireless SU-4. Since where I live the price for these two items is more or less identical I would like to get some opinions on what is most preferable.

If I get the SC-17, I will get all capabilities that the flash and camera provides but there is no way of using the built-in speedlight together with the SB-22s.

On the other hand if I get the SU-4 I will get the possibility to use both flashes. But I will loose the TTL matrix metering (right?)

I would like to get your input on this matter to help me understand the pros and cons of each solution and verify that my assumption are right.
