    ...ok, thinking about upgrading my strobe sometime in the next year.

    I've been using the S&S YS-25 that came with my DX-5000G, and think it's time to move up.:idk:

    What are 2G shooters using?

    ...thanks!

    Inon S2000, the STTL works great, I also have the S&S YS27DX...

    I currently have two YS-110a strobes and think they are excellent. That said, I would recommend using them in manual mode rather than the DSTTL. I find that the DSTTL doesn't work great.

    I confirm this. I have an YS-110 and an YS-110a. In the beginning I used the TTL-mode but was disappointed with the results. Switching to manual mode gives far better and more consistent results. Avoid the (used) YS-110 (without the a) because I experience rather frequent missed flashes with this strobe and have seen this as a comment in more threads. Go for the YS-110a if you choose the Sea&Sea strobes.
    You could start with one of these strobes if money is a problem and later upgrade to 2. Two strobes are a must for wide angle shots

    YS-01 is another good choice- very comparable to the YS-110a, and priced a little lower.
