Can any of you guys recommend a ttl flashgun as a cheaper but affective alternative to an original nikon branded unit. Thinking around £100 price range. Obviously it would need to be an improvement on the built in pop up unit.

I'd go for the Sigma EF-610, the non-super version. Pretty much an SB-700 less the commander and slave functionality, but half the price. It is a BIG improvement over the popup. Supposedly the Nissim ones are in the same category.
I'd stay away from the Yonghuo ones, as I can't remember which are the good ones and which are not.

A quick word of warning !! The Nissin DI 622 is still available in the older version and sometimes reffered to as the Mk1. If you own a D7000 as I do, its important that you go for the Mk11 version, which works with the iTTL. The older units are NOT compatible with the D7000. Other than that looks like a very good bang for the buck deal.
