I bought a new SB-600 for my D50 and I noticed it wobbles quite a bit when attached to the camera. The lever is locked and is as secure as I can make it but it still has quite a bit of play in it. The flash works fine but I am afraid this movement will get worse. Has anyone else noticed this with the SB-600 or SB-800 on their nikon?

Thanks

I have a SB-600 and a D70s and it works fine. Yours must have a defect. When that lever is locked it does not move. Try it in a different camera to see if it's the mount?

My 800 wobbles very little on My D200 and My D100 and also on My 8700. It does not seem to hurt anything. It won't fall off and it functions just perfect. I did not even notice it until I read your post and then checked it out on my equipment. I don't think it is anything to worry about.

D50 + SB600 = very slight wobbling, certainly nothing to worry about.

I checked another camera and another flash and they all seem to wobble a little.
I am not going to worry about it.

Thanks for the replies.
