OK, I'm sure some of you are getting pretty sick of me. Unfortunately money is tight and I have to make good decisions.

I have decided I'm going to go the CLS route with 2 strobes and modifiers (probably umbrellas). 90% of my shooting is product shots with the remainder fun stuff.

I own an SB-600 already and was planning on the SB-800 as commander. However, I started wondering if an SU-800 with an additional SB-600 wouldn't be smarter. Other than the slight power advantage of the SB-800, this combination (the 600s & the SU-800)would give me more control, better range and almost the same light output.

Any comments on my thinking here?
