Another question I would like to ask also is if the new Metz flashes solve the problem of overheating with rapid flash use.

I have not used the Metz for rapid fire sequences so I cannot offer a useful opinion here. Sorry!

My tests with the Sony 58AM and the 60M units result in overheating when...

At 5 second intervals, full power (manual) takes about 25 flashes. It doesnt feel overly hot to touch anywhere at this point but the symbol flashes and no more action until the batteries are cycled and unit restarted.

Perhaps this is a benchmark you can compare the metz with.
