I recently purchased a SB900 flash and I noted the head zooms normally with the Diffusing Dome in place when the lens is zoomed in and out. I also noticed that the head on my older SB800 does not zoom when the diffuser is in place, In fact the SB800 has a microswitch which diasables this function when the diffuser dome is in place. Why one and not the other? I also noted is a book "The Hot Shoe Diaries" that some people "notch" their diffuser dome on the SB800 to defeat this feature. Any thoughts?
