Two questions:

1. I have an SB20 speedlight, which I use with a Nikon 2020s. How well, if at all, will the SB20 work with the newer AF Nikons, i.e. N90s, N80, F4, etc. I'm considering buying a new body...

2. Can you use the venerable Vivitar 283 as a slave unit with a camera-mounted SB20? Can you do likewise with a SB26? SB28? If so, any tips and/or tricks?

ok, three questions...

3. Can I use my SB20 off-camera with a cord to the 2020s? If so, what type of cord do I use.

Thanks for indulging my curiousity.
