I was a bit dismayed to find that my D800 didn't "recognise" the SB-25 speedlights that I regularly use. With the D700, using an SB-25 in the hotshoe would automatically set the flash synch speed. This no longer happens with the D800. It's not really a big deal, since I'm nearly always in fully manual mode when using flash anyway. Plus the camera's refusal to acknowledge old-school flashes means that it longer locks up when the SB-25 is in TTL mode, or when fitted with a 3rd party non i-TTL flash or SCA adapter. And rear curtain synch still works correctly. What I'm wondering is: Has this change been made simply for spiteful marketing purposes, to try and force users to upgrade their flash gear? Or has Nikon got some future flash development in mind and removed some backward compatibility to make room for forward compatibility? Might we soon see radio-frequency CLS communication between Nikon speedlights, similar to Canon's latest system? I'm not usually keen on wild speculation about future products, but I'd welcome a change to a more reliable RF CLS system - as long as it wasn't ridiculously expensive.
