Good luck, SB-28s go for about $110 used in the US, and they are usually not in mint condition (ie., scratches and/or velcro on it). Even SB-24s go for $75+.
I got my SB80Dxs for cheaper than 110

110 for sb28s :lol: :lol: that's just jokes.

I don't know when you got your SB80, but the market now is what is. Go find me one for substantially less, and I'll buy it. If you think that's bad, go find out what SB24s are selling for.

Bought them all 12 months ago.

I can find you one for substantially less, but my finders fee will kill it ;)

Secured my SB28 from a family member. :)

I am now on the hunt my triggers. I decided to go with the RF-602 system. Now I need:
2x transmitters
2x receivers
Should be able to get it done for under $60.

All that's left:
-Umbrellas
-Light stands
-Umbrella adapters

Are the DX adapters and umbrellas any good?

Since I will be using speedlights I will be using an umbrella. I would like to use a softbox, but the speedlights probably will not be powerful enough. I currently have zero lighting equipment since people are not my usual subject.
when you say speedlights probalby will not be powerful enough, what are you lighting? what's the largest group size? I've never had an issue with speedlights not being powerful enough (actually sometimes its too powerful even at the lowest setting)....i've seen speedlights used to light quite the large group as well, but maybe I misinterpreted what you meant...

as for light stands I pick mine up at vistek....i believe for about $25 and they work for me...adapters i've picked up at several locations but my fav is from flashzebra.com
the ones i get from dealextreme are ok as long as you mod it:

and umbrellas off ebay..the ones off dx i think is about 33" or so..which i think its a bit on the small side....i'd opt for 43" - 46"

Watched a video on youtube, of a guy, tied 3 580exII's to a speed ring for a softbox.

He also said that he uses 3 because the softbox costs a stop and a 1/2 of light or so.
