Anyone using an SB-400 with a D200 and the 17-35mm f/2.8 Nikkor?

The built-in flash on the D200 casts a shadow at the mid to wider end of this lens, so I need a compact speedlight that doesn't do so.

The SB-400 seems like a good complement to my SB-800 -- which gets too bulky to carry around for general purpose stuff where I use my 17-35mm.

From online docs it seems the coverage is about 18mm for DX format sensors ... so can I assume that if I only zoom out to no wider than 18mm I will be OK? Has this been a prob for anyone who's using this combo?

Should I consider something else?
