comment Nikon SU800 flash commander and studio strobes
I bought 2 PocketWizards, and they work well. The plan was not to buy anything (2 PocketWizards=$200), since I already had the SU800. Thanks for your tips and suggestions. I think we can call this question answered.

Camera is in Manual mode set at F9 and 1/160. However, your 1/10 second preflash fits the observed circumstances perfectly. I will set camera in Commander mode as well and try the SU800 again. Thanks.

comment Practical Difference Between Nikon 80-200 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8?
To add to all the comments above, another good and surprising feature of the 70-200 is that it shoots well up close (3-5 meters) with practically no distortion. I have shot some amazing outdoor photos with ISO 200, f4.5, but with a 1/4000 shutter, at a distance of about 15 feet. The advantage is that there is great deapth of field, since the lens is working almost like a pinhole.
