:there is verry little difference between the 990 and the 995 the flip up flash and the more orange to the 990 flash then the 995 flash is the only real noticable difference. The 99- series has on of the best macro stock lenses on the mid range camera market today. I would suggest posting on the Morelia Viridis forum as this is Gregs Stomping ground. .. It can be found here.
Here are a couple of my thoughts about the flash on the Nikons.
For the 990 if you plan on having a wide angle lens it blocks the flash. I can't say for certain, but I would think this is why they came up with the pop up flash so it would shoot mostly over the large screw on lens. I believe all the flashes are in the 5500k range.
Here's my observation of the Nikon 5000 flash. Notice the over exposed picture of my 990 that I took on macro with my Nikon 5000. More often than not the 5000 likes to unload full flash power on close up subjects and indoor close portraits. Indoor pictures of people look much the same as the picture of the pictured Nikon 990 with big hot spots and over exposure when using the flash on auto. There's probably a way to fix this in manual mode, but you would think Nikon could have a more useable flash on auto for the 5000.
