Re: Metz 58 af 1 with em-5 ?

How are you setting it to "manual" mode? With my Metz 50 AF-1, I select "SL" on the flash and then I can control manual power on the body.

Does it simply not fire at all when you set it to M? And it does if set to TTL? Because that's really odd behavior. If the RC communication mode is working properly, I would expect it to work regardless of how the camera is deciding what power to request.

Are you sure you don't have it in "Servo" mode instead of normal Slave mode?

And are you sure you have the group/channel settings correct?
