I'm thinking of getting a second flash for my D5100.

I have an SB700 and it works grand.
The D5100 does not have the CLS Command system built in but if I put the SB700 or SB910 onto the camera I understand all the features of the CLS will work and the on camera flash will also control the off camera flash through a remote hook up.

Right now I can fire the SB700 using the remote feature and the on camera flash but I don't think there is any automatic light controls, it just fires as a slave unit. This works fine most times.

So my question is whether there is a $140 improvement in the 910 over the 700? I know that it is a little more powerful and I suppose that might come in handy in some situation. How many more meters of light would I be getting?. Any other benefit or is the 910 the same flash with a little more umph?
