Hi Folks

I'm not a regular user of 'flash', but as you all know, there are times when you need it.

On these occasions I just use the pop uf on the body (D300s & D700).

Trouble is, most of my lenses cast a tombstone-like shadow in the foreground when this happens.

I think the little SB-400 is the one for me but my question is, will it still cast that shadow?

Also, what will be the longest (physically- not focal length) lens that's usable with the 400 without a shadow appearing?
