You might need to explain your question a bit more

If you are referring to speedlights yes they are all different powers, different features and different compatability and different prices

ok, well, you have five nikon choices

sb-400 - small. cheap. weak. not that flexible. cant command remotely
sb-600 - smallish, reasoable power, quite flexible
sb-700 - new - seems best all round flash for most casual users
sb-800 - more powerful, can command remotely, flexible
sb-900 - top of the line, powerful, command mode etc etc, feature rich

so, sb-700 would be my pick
