It's a very valid rumor too; it's a nearly 6 year old flash.
That said, just because it's old & being replaced doesn't make it any less capable - one of the better value flashes, especially for the Nikon system, available imho.
Very TRUE, look at the SB 800. GREAT flash and got replaced by the 900, now the 800 sells more used than it did new since the 900 hasn't not been accept by the community. Wonder if I have box a gross of the 600 hoping for the same mistake again?
Only after I bought her this flash, did she start liking the D40. She now says it is one of the best purchases I have ever given her.
This flash will make your D40 be able to take rapid-fire shots.
Very good purchase indeed.
What I am going to say is going to sound offensive bear with me for a second.
buy this book
Nikon D40 for dummies (Julie Adair King)
Not a joke. This book increased my enjoyment of my D40 by leaps and bounds. I now know all the functions of my camera and when to use it. I look at my camera now and think.. wow.. there really ARENT that many buttons on it.
I was in market looking for used SB600. I must tell you, on an average the used ones sell around this price!
If this is for your own use and if it satisfies your needs (if you are lucky to find one at your local Target) I would say go for it. Does not really matter if it is going to get discontinued in few months. I've seen many of other long discontinued Nikon stuff that still sell at pretty descent price on ebay.
