Maybe, just maybe, setting camera in M mode requires flash to be switched from TTL to manual mode too... just a guess

It does still work well in TTL mode, but you have to control the FEC from the flash instead of from the camera. Or if you're using the popup, you have to go menu diving each time you want to adjust the flash.

Thank you for this news. It is good to know that is is still possible to control FEC: via flash is better than nothing.

Definitely, I was just surprised that they went to all the trouble to setup the camera dials to control the flash, but then left out so many common uses.  One nice feature is they give visual feedback (the screen stutters a bit) if you try to push the shutter and your flash isn't fully recharged.

BTW, what flash did you use?

It's a metz AF-50.  It does work quite nicely all around.
