I have Nikon D850 with many Nikon SB-xxxs and have made the switch to Godox flashes. They are excellent value. 3 V860iis and a AD360ii. I have the X1T-N and the XPro-N. Both work every time so far in the house everywhere. Two caveats:
- The Xpro has a bigger screen and is a little easier to navigate but it does not automatically go into HSS when the camera goes past normal sync speed. Unless the transmitter is set to HSS the camera will not go past sync speed.
- The X1T auto detects when it needs to switch to HSS mode. The bad is the menu navigation takes a little getting use to, but I suspect I'll get past that soon.
So far I have only used them like 6 times. Also I have to keep an eye on the battery life--yet to be determined.
Another plus is all of the Godox flashes (speedlights and studio) have built in receivers so extra purchase their and total compatibility. But receivers are available for non-godox flashes-about $40 each.
