Question #1: I currently have a SB800 and a SB600, and want to get one nice flash to use as my main light, and then use the speedlights for accent lighting if needed. I'm looking at the Elinchrom 500BXRi, which seems to be a nice flash, but very costly. Does anyone have any recommendations that are not so expensive (or other advice)? I would like to use it mainly for indoor portraits.

Question #2: If I use the main flash (such as the 500BXRi with a pocket wizard, can I still use the speedlights with the TTL ability. My camera is a D90, so it has commander capability. Just wondering since I would put the PW on the camera shoe, would that render my wireless TTL useless?

Thank you.
