It also has auto FP 1/200th and 1/250th, which are handy for short distances where you can tolerate a reduced flash output. Read up in our Speedlight forums about Nikon abilities with flash - even the D600 is fabulous compared to other brands.

Another terrific link is for moderator Russ MacDonald's blog on CLS

I had a D70s with its hybrid shutter that allowed the 1/500th - but that shutter did weird things under certain exposure circumstances. That was the real reason Nikon stopped using it IMO. Then my trusty D200 was half that, no issues - I find even with my N80, (1/125th), I can get what I want with flash for my style of shooting. I guess like others, I am saying it probably will be no big issue.
