Not that I can give a lot of help with my limited experience, but I know a question that will arrise is.... What type of shooting is this for? As in, in a studio where you have full control or out and about?

Right, sorry I should have told.

I like taking full manual control of my DSLR, so I would find it boring having to stick to automatic mode with my flash. I already checked some videos on youtube, about specific shooting settings, and I'd love to try these myself.

If in addition, I can get TTL, then this is great, but there seems to be a compromise if I take the Metz (TTL, but limited manual).

So the question really is: will I get bored if I purchase the Metz and want to be creative with my flash unit?
