Default D-100 with an SB-25

Will my older-but-good SB-25 give me full TTL flash capacity with a D100? Hopefully something like as well as it works with my N90. Otherwise I suppose I will need an SB80, but they cost plenty if I don't really need one.

Sorry, bad news. The answer is no to TTL. The Nikon and Canon D-SLRs use a new flash metering system, which is completely different than the old TTL. You can still use the SB-25, but in manual mode. Get the old Guide Number chart out or get a new SB-80DX.

I bought the SB-80DX. It is truly a fine speedlight. I keep the SB-28 on the F100.

I think the SB25 still work with the D100 in the automatic mode and manual mode?, and yes it will not work on the D-TTL mode inc the most recent SB-28. Just attach the SB 25 on the hot shoe and fire it away, then give us a feed back here, thanks...
