Good match for Leica V Lux

  • Excerpt: I chart with B&H and confirmed the item is made in Germany, (I had a really bad experience with a China made Metz) when the item arrived, there are no marking of where the product was made.

  • Pros: Attach Securely, Good Color Value, Powerful

Works fantastic so far

  • Excerpt: Works great with my Panasonic Lumix G2. Because it is my first flash and just recieved it, I cannot comment on this product much, but it seems to recharge fast (1-2 sec.). I agree with the negative comments about the battery compartment. Just be careful with it and secure it tightly.
  • Cons: Flimsy
