Re: Metz 58 af 1 with em-5 ?

What is the firmware on your E-M5? Mine is running 1.5. And it's really messed up!

I just double checked and the Metz 50 AF-1 *does* work properly when fired by the E-PM1. I can set it to manual, I can change groups. It all works just like it's supposed to. I even used the clip-in flash from the E-M5 on the E-PM1, and that worked fine too - so it's got to be something about the E-M5 body!

I suppose the recent E-M5 firmware could have broken compatibility with Metz flashes - either intentionally or accidentally? I only recently got the E-M5 myself so I don't know if this ever worked on earlier firmwares. I guess we should contact Metz support? Hopefully they will fix this!

It would be nice to have more confirmation!
