"SB-800 Sayonara
Oct 7--NikonUSA have officially discontinued the SB-800 and cancelled all dealer backorders. This basically confirms the rumor when Best Buy decided to liquidate their inventory."

Hope mine still works.

Well damn, now I'm wishing I had bought one instead of the SB600 when I did. Ohh well, the 600 is plenty for the time being anyways.

Costco has them online for 329.99 shipping included.

Hope mine still works.

I'd be more concerned about what happens when the 70-200VR gets superseded shortly.
My offer to take it off your hands still applies but you will need to sweeten the deal by throwing in the SB-800 as well now. :D

I paid $309 for mine three months ago online so I still have a better deal then many of the current prices.
