  • Summary: The Metz 58 AF-1 is the current premier flash from Metz.de. This particular flash is a dedicated unit intended to be matched to your camera platform. It is available for Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic, and Sony per the Metz firmware download site. This review will focus on the P-TTL version marketed for Pentax and Samsung and will also show some side by side compares to the Pentax flagship, the AF540FGZ.

  • Excerpt: Metz (or Mecablitz) may be an unfamiliar name to a lot of you but for many decades its been the workhorse flash for a lot of pro photographers around the world. Metz is made in Germany and marketed in the US by Bogen Imaging Inc. www.bogenimaging.us I used to sell a lot of Metz strobes at the camera stores I worked at and over the decades came to appreciate their quality and durability.

Metz 58 AF-1

  • Summary: It's a great flash and at £267, it's competitively priced against the high end models. like the Nikon SB900 and Canon 580 If you're looking for a separate flash unit with fill options and full TTL and you don't want to pay full whack for a manufacturer's own model then this is the flashgun to get.
  • Pros: Secondary flash head, Burst rate option, Wide coverage, USB port for online updates
  • Cons: Annoying "double-press" to enter the menu
