    If you're going to be a couple of hundred down....personally, I'd stick with what you have. If you have to replace it later on, go with the Pro TL.

    They all have mirror lock-up: Super/Pro/ ProTL.

    I'd agree.

    An upgrade where you add a Pro-Tl body and relegate the Super body to backup makes much more sense.

    And as for functional differences, the Super has a single manual (battery independent) shutter speed but no self timer function. The Pro and Pro-Tl bodies have no battery independent shutter speeds, but do have a self timer function. All three do have mirror lock-up.

    I'll give one real world example, where TTL flash got the exposure right on target (when an ordinary photosensor Auto flash would have been fooled)...

    Bride and groom seated inside the limo, in preparation to go from church to reception location. Sunny conditions, white limo, door to B&G wide open. Use of short tele FL to frame B&G with just a bit of the door opening visible to give the viewer a suggestion of the location of the shot. TTL flash exposure of the otherwise dark interior was perfectly exposed. (Auto flash with its wider degree photosensor coverage would have been fooled by the sunlight striking the white exterior of the limo.)
