I am looking at it as well but I have not decided if I shoot enough 
flash to justify getting one and a Nikon flash. It is a neat addition 
to one's TTL flash capabilities. You can use ANY camera/TTL flash 
combination to control the SU-4. It douses its flash when the main 
flash shuts down. The SU-4 can only be used with a Nikon compatible TTL 
flash so you cannot mount a SF-20 to it. Nikon's TTL flashes (see the 
article below for a list of flashes) and Metz with a Nikon TTL adapter 
will work.
