Hi,

I have recently been investigating Radio Popper PX and Pocket Wizard TT1, AC3 & TT5 to use instead of Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS) outdoors. When I was told by another photographer (who may or may not be testing equipment for Nikon) said that early next year, Nikon 'may' release SB-980 with RADIO trigger built in. IF this is true, that and a revised SU-800 (or similar) will make Radio Popper and Pocket Wiz obsolete for Speedlite users. It does make sense that Nikon does this as Canon shooters are loving their 600EX-RT.

As you can imagine, I asked several follow up questions to that photographer but no further answers were given.

So... since there are so many of us here with great interest in Nikon products, I am wondering if anyone else have heard anything like this OR have I been told a 'story'?
