not too big, and real NG28 power... fast time recycle not like the FL36 for exemple.

great combo with my XZ-2.

I use a big honking Metz AF-1 50 with my XZ-2. The latter is usually on a tripod doing product work when I use the flash but if handholding, I can just hold the camera with one hand and the flash with the other. IOW I'm using the flash as a remote all the time. This metz supports remote ttl flash

The front firing trigger flash conveniently provides some catchlight when I point the remote Metz at the ceiling to do bounce. No need to worry about reorienting the flash head when switching to portrait as I would if mounting it on the hotshoe. Changing camera settings with both hands full is a little problematic though
