oh and wired triggering is the only way to go for cheap. Hobby tells you how to make badass sync cords on the wayyy cheap. Check out lighting 101 on strobist.com.
What adapter would I need for wired? They came with a sync cord but I don't have the port on the D5000.

d5000 doesn't have pc sync port? Shameful.
What does it have? Just the hotshoe?
Can go with any multitude of adapters on bh I guess. I've never had that issue tbh.

Could also check flashzebra.com. I've used them before and they are decent.

Oh crap, right you need to sync 2... Plug one in and have the other trigger by the other light? Me no know.

EDIT: Haha, I'm so dumb, I didn't even read your post.

AB's usually can trigger off a flash fire. If not just daisy chain a sync cord from one to the other.

you can actually get a simple fleabay hotshoe to pc port adapter then getting a PC cord to 1/8" cable (or 3.5mm then a 1/8" adapter) then just dasiy chain off the first.

but i have those wireless triggers and they work fairly well. highly recommend them if you want to go wireless but its far cheaper to just go wired if you dont need to go wireless.

Post some shots when you get it dude. Especially ones on bright sunlight, as I'm curious to see how well this lens does with flare and CA.

And don't forget to bring Chris Hansen and the camera crew with you.

Can't see the shallow DOF in this shot. I'm curious to see how shallow it is with this lens on APS-C. It does look plenty sharp though!

And you'll be amazed at just how far away you can cast a shallow DOF with this lens. No need to get to close!
