I use my SB600 and a Better Beamer on my D300 with 18-200 (hopefully a 70-200 VR or replacement soon) of my daughter's high school marching band. The combination seems to work OK, but is just not handy to set up and use IMHO. Can anyone offer any advise regarding the use of an SB900 in place of the SB600 + Better Beamer in this situation?

I know that $500 is a lot to spend for a flash to photograph high school marching band, but I have planned to add an SB800 anyway, and would spend the extra to move to the SB900 if it would work better at 200mm.

One more question regarding the SB900. Has anyone heard about the possibility of Nikon updating the firmware of the D300 or SB-900 to support color temperature correction with the use of the included gels as is supported on the D3 and D700?
