"sb26 with f5 ok?"


IL
          

hello to all,

i have an option of purchasing an f5 with an sb28. anybody who has this camera and used both the sb28 and 26 can tell me what's missing in the 26 that the 28 has?

i've only used 28's till now.
http://www.nikonlinks.com/unklbil/speedlights.htm
doesn't list some features working with the sb26 like it did for the 28. just worried i won't get in a rut .i'm trying to keep my equipment similar so when i do my wedding pics i don't have problems remmbering the differences between them.

thanks in advance

WAKE UP NIKON!

Actually it's other way round... 26 have all what 28 have + it works as slave (2 different slave modes)..

Furthermore, the body can live without the mind but it is called comma. (Just kidding; today I had a couple of great successes at work)

Ditto to what Jussi stated - it's the other way around.

IMHO, the SB-26 is a better light than the SB-28, mainly because of it's cordless (or corded) slave capailities. Further, it uses less battery power when the red-eye reduction is turned off (never needed w/ an F5 anyway). However, the SB-26 is a little bigger than the SB-28, but that doesn't bother me.

I have 3 SB-26 in use with my F5 and my N90s. Had 2, and a new SB-28. Didn't like the SB-28, turned it back in for a refund and bought a used SB-26 instead (along w/ a used 24mm f/2.8).

I have always believed that Nikon discontinued the SB-26 and replaced it with the SB-28 in order to market the SU-4 slave trigger (which is the SB-26 circuitry in new packaging). This, of course, was to increase sales revenue.

Relax and enjoy the combination, if you get them.
