Daniel is right. 

According to my experience,

you need to bump the shutter speed without the fear of ISO, while working with extreme teles.

If the daylight is good then you are lucky, if not accept what you had gotten.

Another important thing is to be as close as possible to subject, I mean very close.

Tele doesnt mean to get excellent shoots from faraway distances.

You can only get snapshoots of far subjects, dont expect to get more, if you dont have 20k$ lens :).

Even if you have that spectacular lens, atmospheric conditions always in the game; heat, dust, wind, humidity etc.

And I am also in big trouble with hand held big lens.

But professional tele shooters find 1-2kg weight for the lens fair enough.

These are my a few cents.

That's a great news for you. I think it will be great challenge.

I am always interested in strobist stuff.

I cannot be dedicated nowadays, but I am bookmarking the site and will follow for the future chances.

You can also look to cheap meike 910 unit, if you consider third party.

I heard good feedback.

Another factor to remember when comparing flash on a Pentax with flash on a D610 is the lower noise in the Nikon files. This means that you can raise ISO the step needed to get the same reach from the weaker flash.

I like my SB910-s and don't find them too heavy or bulky, but then I used Metz 60 and 45 potatomashers in the film days...

This is a good trick, I couldnt think it. 

What do you think of current metz, sigma or nissin flashes?

Thanks Peter, you are very hepful as always, great recommendations.

GN number of sb700 is similar to my previous pentax 360fgz.

I found it low when I obtained 540fgz, especially for bouncing applications.

Infact I liked sb910 except its size.
