I noticed that while using the D80 with a SB600 (powered on and mounted on the body), Program Auto was deactivated. I could not select a different program for exposure. If I turned the SL off, the Program feature would work again.

Why is the system designed this way? I have not checked but is the same true in A mode and S mode?

I would like to be able to vary the DOF while still using the SL for fill flash. Can this be done a different way?
