Hi, I have recently bought a used D700, and I am considering buying a Nikon-specific flash. I already have manual remote flashes (a set of Cactus v6 transceivers, a Cactus RF60 and a few manual or old-style TTL flashes) which I am not specially interested in replacing, but I do want an iTTL flash, HSS-capable and ideally usable off-camera. The Godox TT350 looks nice and goes for about the same price as a used SB600 as far as I can see. Does anyone have experience with it? Or does anyone have a good alternative? Maybe the Yongnuo 568EX? I get the feeling the Godox system is more versatile than Yongnuo should I want to expand on my purchase, but I don't really know either system well so I may be mistaken.

The TT350 is quite good, but it recharges a bit slow.

 

A V860 is more powerful, which means that it doesn't need to recharge as much between flashes and the capacitor bank charges faster as well. It costs twice as much, but it would be worth the difference in my opinion.
