Our opinion:

The SB-5000 is the ultimate Nikon portable Speedlight (replaces SB-910),and is designed for use on camera as well as for complete wireless control in the studio or on location. Use it as a hot shoe mounted flashgun, remote unit or wireless Commander. Compatible with all Nikon digital SLR cameras this is a real investment for your camera equipment if Nikon is your chosen brand."

The Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight Flash is fast, reliable and versatile and offers unprecedented lighting possibilities, outdoors and in the studio. Radio signals enable a working distance of 30 meters. The new internal cooling system you can capture more than 100 images in quick succession whereby the flash fires at full strength. And for photographers who do not want to miss a moment of the latest news, the light, compact SB-5000 offers clear, intuitive user controls.

This is the first Nikon Speedlight flash that offers wireless radio control, so that there does not have to be a direct line of sight between the master and the slave flash, this increases reliability when shooting in bright sunlight.
