Hi Richard,

I bought the Metz 58AF-2 half a year ago and I would really recommend it. Here in GER it is a bit cheaper than the Pentax flash, I read somewhere, that it is just the other way round in the US.

My reasons for the Metz are:

Firmware upgradable via USB by user
Automatic mode
Servo Mode
external battery pack for 1s recharge time (flash to flash)

Works good, feels got, results are fine

Thanks, Fotobet, I will re-consider the 58.
