I have several SB800s and I have an SB900 on order. I would like to use these as fill flash during the day with a 400 to 600 mm telephoto. I see from the manual that I can engage a high speed sync function on my D2X and D3 that allows me to shoot above 1/250. However, the manual does not say how fast I can go.

1) What is the maximum sync speed I can use on the SB800 and SB900?
2) Is this the same for the D2X and D3?
3) Does the i-TTL still work with the high speed sync in operation?

Because I have several of the strobes I was considering banking them up to increse the reach. I see from the manual that the CLS system allows me to shoot using one as the commander and the others as slaves.

4) Can I shoot multiple strobes using the high speed sync using a bank of strobes with the CLS system?
5) Will this work with i-TTL?
6) Can I run the commander attached with an SC28 off camera shoe in high speed sync mode using a bank of strobes.
