Default Nikon D5200 and SB600

Selling my D70 and plan to keep the SB600 flash.
Will the SB600 work with the D5200?

Dan, according to Ken Rockwell, it will.

i-TTL metering.
Works only with SB-910, SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, SB-600 and SB-400.
1/200 sync.

Good news...bad news.
Yes, the SB600 works with the D5200

The bad news may not be bad as I believe was the same with the D70, so would not be losing any functionality. The SB600 must be used on the D5200 hot shoe. While the SB600 supports Nikon's very capable multi-flash CLS system as one of the off camera slave flashes, the D5200 can not function as a commander to trigger with the pop-up. I don't believe the D70 had that capability, with Commander Mode introduced with the D90 and higher.

Default Change in plans

Purchased a D200 body instead. The SB600 works fine with it.

The D70 had limited commander functionality.
