First timer and pleased

  • Excerpt: This is the first Metz flash I've had and so far I'm very pleased with it. I've had a Nikon SB-800 for many years and it's been a good flash. I used the SB-900 and it would over heat and cut off in the middle of a photo shoot, that flash isn't worth the material it's packaged in.

Versitile Powerful Flash

  • Excerpt: I chose the Metz one over a similar flash-- both with secondary reflectors (a small second flash in front to fill in if using 90 degree tilt.) Bounce (imo) offers better detail and eliminates harsh shadows and unwanted reflections-- esp. with people who were eyeglasses.

Makes flash photography a lot easier

  • Excerpt: Added a stroboframe 350 to my Pentax K-5 then the Metz 58 AF-2 set to Auto mode. The K-5 is not known for reliability when it comes to speedlights but the Metz gets the job done. My newer model K-3 is in the shop but I can't wait to try the Pttl mode.

Awesome flash unit

Luis, B&H Photo
16 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Using this unit with a Quantum battery. Unit works nicely with my D800; no compatibility issues. Since I get to use the high power port (to connect my battery), I wish this was located in a more efficient location: when the external battery power cord is plugged in, the cord itself gets in the way...

Great flash....I love it

Ellen, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm really excited about this flash, it does so much and I really love the fact that it has a secondary reflector for the catch light for the eyes when I have to bounce my flash! It really is well made, you can tell the minute you take it out of the box.

  • Excerpt: This is a wonderful flash with great output. The recycle time is slower than I am used to but overall I love this flash and will use it as my primary.

Excellent flash unit

Razvan, B&H Photo
9 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a nicely built unit. The plastic is less rigid than on the Pentax AF540FGZ which means it should be harder to crack. The hot shoe is metal and more precisely machined than the Pentax counterpart.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Not weather sealed
