I'm bouncing back and forth on these two flashes. Can you tell me if there are advantages/disadvantages between them.

Will the Metz do "everything" the Pentax will do? Is it fully compatible in wireless mode?

The target price is below $300, so the bigger Metz and newest Pentax are out.

For use with K5II or K7 and bouncing the flash? Get a flash with auto mode. Metz 50 does not, metz 58 does, don't know about 52 or 540FGZ. P-TTL is problematic on K5II when bouncing.

Used 58 AF1 could be an affordable option.
