Hi Hal
I'm bit new to the wonderful world of flash photography
Here's what I have and how I currently use them

(Four Speedlights + Four FlexTT5 units)

1 x SB800 on a FlexTT5
3 x SB600 all on FlexTT5s
MiniTT1 on Camera
SU-800 on Mini
Sekonic L-758D

Most of the time I use all speelights in Manual mode through SU-800.
The reason for buying this setup was to control the light output
remotely from the camera without adjusting each of the speedlights.

Whenever I'm in manual mode (i.e. 95% of the time) I use the L-758 to
meter prior to shooting. On the rare occasions I'm on CLS I do NOT
meter.

As for type of shooting, currently it's limited to garage, living
room and macro shooting with speedlights

Having to fire the shutter or the test button on mini every time I
have to take a meter reading is the only nuisance I have at the
moment. So despite seeing few posts in various forums about the
incompatibility I ordered a RT32 module for my L-758 thinking I
might be able to fire the speedlights from L-758 to take meter readings.

Will let you guys know how it goes....!!!

Regards
Dinil
