This appears to be the best price going for this speedlight at the moment. The next cheapest is the same vendor selling through Amazon Marketplace. Non-Amazon Marketplace vendors are selling this for £217 or more, according to http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk.

CAVEAT: In spite of this statement on their website:

"All products sold by Buyacamera.co.uk are supplied through the official UK distributors and as such are covered by their twelve month guarantee" -- https://www.buyacamera.co.uk/returns.html

my Speedlight arrived without a warranty card. I called Nikon UK and they state that presenting the warranty card is a condition of their International Warranty being honoured. I called buyacamera and they explained that the Speedlight has been split from a bundle (with the D3100?) and so because the single warranty card covers both items, it cannot be sent out with either. They state that they will honour the warranty and claim that they have never had a case of Nikon refusing to service one before.

Update 11 Dec 2010: Now reduced by £5

SLR gear is silly prices at the moment but this is a good deal right now. A good flash. A word of warning on Camera gear that seems cheap - I would ask them to confirm in an email that it comes with a UK warranty. Not sure if it will cause problems but some of the cheaper retailers are bringing in grey imports without any warranty paperwork - I was caught out when buying this exact item. The vendor gave me a refund when I threatened to call my credit card company.

The SB-800 and SB-900 don't cost that much more than this and offer a lot more power... Just something to be conscious of.

A very good point. I'd already checked, and https://www.buyacamera.co.uk/returns.html says:

"All products sold by Buyacamera.co.uk are supplied through the official UK distributors and as such are covered by their twelve month guarantee"

If I'm not able to register the warranty on Nikon's website, I'll be complaining similarly.

Good point. However I have the 600 and 900. The 600 is the one which is nearly always in my bag. It gives a better balance on the camera (and takes up less room in the bag) and is more than enough power for most occasions. (it is nice to have the 900 if you need to light a larger room or have a high ceiling to bounce off for example)

The SB-800 is discontinued, and goes for about £200 on eBay used and without warranty. The SB-900 goes for about £319 new and is quite bulky compared with the SB-600. There's the new SB-700, but that doesn't appear to be shipping yet. The best price I've found for that is about £260, but most vendors are advertising it for £290!

I ordered this at 3.30pm and had it by 10am next day. Great service and a really good price I think. Thanks very much.
