"sb22 vs sb28"



I have two quick ones:

I read the coverage of sb22 is 28mm. what happens if I use a longer lens, say 105mm? Does it automatically covers that ?

sb28 covers a wider angle, , so does it also include a 105mm lens coverage? These are tricky specs because they tell you what it can do but doesn't tell you what it couldn't.

Any help is welcome!

Henry

"Coverage" of 28mm means Maximum coverage (in terms of angle).
In other words, if it covers the angle of a 28mm lens (70 degrees horizontal, 53 degrees vertical in the specific case of the SB-22), it certainly covers the smaller angle of lenses of greater focal length, but not the wider angle of smaller focal length.

I am seriously thinking of buying the sb28 for my Fm3a. Other alternatives include sb22 and sb27. Yet sb27's bulb is not directly above the lens; it's more like left of the lens And sb22 seems to have some sort of red eye problem .

I am left with sb28 for good gn and general flash design . Will it to be overkill for a FM3a?

Sigh. Never thought buying a ttl lens would be so annoying...

Same powerful Guide Number is found in the SB-24, SB-25, SB-26 and SB-28.
What TTL lens are you buying that is so annoying?

haha, what was I typing! I meant TTL flash

I have decided on the sb28, once and for all so I don't have anything to worry about

Henry:
Of course I knew it. Just trying to say that some homework is always good before purchasing.

A friend of mine said, buy the best flash because you are a professional now!

So I figured, just another hundred bucks for a sb28, why not go for the best.
