I'm trying to set up my Metz 58 AF-2 as a slave flash to my Sony A77. It doesn't work. Anyone has any clue to this?

Well I don't have a clue about Sony cameras but I had a Metz 58 and use Canon. My Metz worked as a slave correctly when I had an external Canon flash on my camera. The signal is optical not radio more than likely you need to activate your pop flash (if it has one) and go into the camera menus and tell the camera it is working as a master, etc.

This is how my 7D works - with pop up flash that sends an optical signal. Never tried the Metz with my 7D but did with my Canon flashes. Sony may have some other optical signalling system. Should be in your manual. Not sure how helpful I was but it may point you in the correct direction.
