Hey all,

I'm shooting a wedding in March, and I want to pick up a 2nd flash. I've got two F100s, and one SB-80DX. I just saw an SB-25 used for $100. Do you think this would do the trick? Are there any metering functions I'd be missing (TTL, 3D-TTL)? I'll be using standard TTL indoors. I don't need a DX flash (yet), and I want to have both cameras ready to be used with a flash unit.

It's either this or pony up for an SB-800 and plan for the future.

And, is $100 a good price?

Thanks!
