Re: New flash

Full ACK.

I use the Metz 58 AF2 for everything. Especially when I use flashlight to reduce contrast, I make use of the A-mode.

For my "home-studio" I have a Yongnuo YN-560III and a set of RF-603II-N flash triggers and some flash tripods, umbrellas and a firefly. Both flashes can be used in manual mode from 1/1 to 1/256 of their power.

The Metz is a non brainer, but seems to be expensive in some markets. But AFAIK it is build to last. So you will still enjoy it, when you do no longer remember the price.

I would buy both flashes again, maybe I will add a third set (YN560III or Metz 52, tripod, umbrella). But don't tell my wife
