I apologize for posting this twice, but was not getting a response in the Nikon Forum, so thought I might in this one. Hope this is not a problem.

I have narrowed my flash search to two models. The Sunpak 555 TTL or the Sunpak PZ-5000. I am looking for the ability to use bounce flash in fairly large rooms and want to use it for fill flash at fairly long distances outdoors. I do allot of wildlife photography especially withe the 1.5X extender (420mm eq). I am thinking that the handle mounted unit would be easier to carry, however getting a bracket for the other unit would give me the same options, plus the ability of haveing a smaller package when needed..

I have looked at the Nikon units on Ebay, but spending $150 for an old SB28 seems silly when I could buy a new Sunpak for the money.

Any input would be appreciated.

What Camera will you be using?

The Nikon 5700 with and without the 1.5x extender.

Made my choice, ordered the PZ5000 AF today from B&H. Hope I like it.
