I am currently using a N/F80. I am looking to add an off camera flash unit. so far I have checked out the SB28 & SB50. I know the SB28 is more powerful, but is it really worth the extra $$$? Usually I don't use any flash right now, but the reason I am wondering is that if you are in the stands at a hockey game for example will the flash help at all, or would you need a flash with a ridiculously high G.N? Is it better to just stick with faster film?

I also posted this question on the sports forum in order to get an answer (hope it's okay)
