For the price this is a great flash

Adorama
30 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I needed an extra speedlight to complete a wireless 3 light system. I already own the 580EX II and the Metz 58 AF-1, so I am pretty familiar with the differences between both units. The 580EX is definately more rugged and of course it's a Canon !<br /><br />In my opinion however, both units work about the same performance wise and are very compatible, but what sold me on the Metz AF-2 is the price about 100-200 dollars cheaper than the 580EX II(depending where you shop),...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Real Auto, Versatile

  • Pros: Output can be electronically adjusted with compensation button
  • Cons: Cost, No dedicated adjustment buttons.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Power, robust, features
  • Cons: The manual could be more descriptive

The very best of all speedlights

Photodoyle, WEX
8 September 2013
  • 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
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Reliable, Strong Construction
