    I rented a pair of sb 900s, placed them in the same softboxes.

    The 900 has a switch to go from commander, remote or on camera.

    The battery life is not as great.

    The 900 seems to do a better job.

    I would have been perfectly happy to get another sb-800, but of course the sb-900 replaced it, and the discontinued sb-800 now regularly sells for about $300 more than the updated version.

    At the same time, the nikon sb-600 is a bit less versatile, and while i don't really need the advanced capabilities of the sb-900 with the d50 today, i might in the future if i upgrade my camera body, so the sb-600 doesn't seem like a good investment.

    Maybe i'm just seduced by the edges being a bit curvier than the sb-800, which felt a bit more angular at the corners, but whatever it is, the physical size of the thing doesn't seem like it's going to be an issue.

    Another nice change: the flash head can now rotate 180º in both directions, unlike the sb-800, which could go to 180º one way, but only 90º the other way.
