Pros: iTTL, 1/500 flash sync with D70, compatible with commander mode, comes with gels, diffusion dome, tripod stand, etc. Easy to use, highly recommended.
Cons:
I have multiple flash syndrome, must buy more!

Bought this for my D70 and have been very happy with the results! I highly recommended this. This is an excellent and easy to use flash. It works flawlessly with the D70. The commander mode is awesome!

Bought at Buydig.com for about $309.00

Pros: veeeery powerful flash; fast recycle time; good battery life; nice set of accessories supplied; wireless works like a charm!!
Cons:
expensive, however, it's worth every cent; the written manual could be improved.

If you can afford it - buy it!

Pros: - Awesome power output - Very good fill-flash capabillities, built in diffusor glass and reflective white card. - Comes with Omnibounce type of external diffusor head - Very fast cycle times (compared to my 420EX) - Battery compartment door is a decent design (unlike the canons) - Feels solid built - Wireless operation works like a charm with the D70
Cons:
None, maybe it's price tag but I think it's good value for the money. I wouldn't consider third party flashes anyway and suppose the SB600 could do the job most of the time, but he, I like this powerful flash, gives me some more room to bounce via the ceiling.
