2.  Will the LED aiming lights be close to the flash tube so the LSD can work without being offset and losing efficiency?

3.  Where is the optical slave sensor for off camera use?



Aiming light is aligned with flash tube - although it has a wide angle beam. But I think that this will make it a very accurate guide for snoot. 


Optical sensor is on the back of the strobe.

It is a very good lens - light and great value for money. It is not popular because it is for cropped sensor cameras only - meaning you would have to sell it if you switched to a full frame camera. For this reason most Nikon users choose the 60mm and 105mm, which can be used both on DX and FX.


Here are three shots taken this year with the 85mm Nikkor:
