Excerpt: I only intend to use this flash as a mere amateur and am unlikely to use many of its features. The reason I bought it was after comparison to the genuine Pentax flashes (which seem to be less robust) and other brands that have fewer features. The dual flash head is a great innovation that provides some great results.
Summary: Iam a pro wedding Photographer so durability and reliablity are key to my equipment.The Metz 58 comes from a long pedigree of pro Flash units and I have used them over many years. I have tried the Nikon speedlights and they are just not up to the job and pack up after a few months of heavy work.Like all sppedlights the Metz is not that accurate at close range on Auto
Summary: This Flash light is very easy to use. You just need to attach and It will start its work. Reflector provides flash in enclosed areas. Its LED display on its back shows the photographer about the flash is ready or not and the photo is lIt in accurate manner.
Summary: The unit can also be used in slave mode; the mode can be selected via a switch on It?s back. Included with it is a standard canon flash shoe stands and padded nylon pouch that allows you to conveniently store and carry the unit.
Summary: I use this flashgun in a wide range of situations including outdoors in sunlight but also indoors. The Metz 58 AF-2 flashgun is superb and it is a much better flash unit than the Nikon SB-910 I think as it does everything the SB-910 can do and it is a lot more powerful plus it's £90 less than the Nikon too and that is a big bonus.
Pros: Easy To Pack, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Strong Construction
Summary: works well with my canon 7Dvery flexible with lots of control/features but this also is a problem as set up can be complicated and has a steep learning curve, but perhaps thats just mewell built
