    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
