Santa just bought a mint SB900 for just over 200 bucks. a friend picked up an identical twin. It seems that we have terrific bargains thanks to some more misguided soul trading the strobes plus D800, D600, three pro 1.4 G lenses and MBs all seemingly in unused condition, all on a mission to the dark side.

Santa also picked up the MBD14 . Sadly the 24mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4 did not get financial approval from local Santa Claus management, and I have a 85mm f/1.4.

So, come next week I will be very happy as my SB800 is getting old and the terminals are crusty, and I like the SB900 buttons and interface, and now I have a two flashes and can do some more creative lighting.

the SB900 will become my goto everyday strobe. Trouble is my Fong Dome, which is a snug fit with the SB800, will not fit the SB900, and I am reluctant to buy another overpricedcpiece of plastic. I am thinking I could cut it to fit, but it may eventually wreck the dome, and it may be better to keep it for the SB800. Has anyone had any joy or otherwise in applying surgery to fix this problem?

Thanks and Happy Xmas to all those celebrating, and happy 2013 to everyone....
