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: 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: This flash makes a great general purpose flash suitable for most if not all uses.It was easy (for me) to pick up and use straight away (minimal use of instruction book needed).Flash exposure perfect. Wireless operations worked well. Seems very logical and fit for purpose.At about £100 cheaper than the Nikon own brand version this seems to be value for money combined with a very suitable alternative.It is quite compact and so slips into my bag with ease and that's...
Pros: Easy To Pack, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Strong Construction, Versatile
Summary: Ich hatte schon den Vorgänger (AF 1) und war sehr zufrieden damit. Da mir dieser bei einem meiner Fotoexkursionen aber abhanden gekommen war, benötigte ich schnell einen Ersatz. Amazon überrascht mich immer wieder, wie schnell geliefert wird. In dem Fall hat das gerade nicht mal zwei Tage gedauert! Was das Blitzgerät selber betrifft, so stimmt hier einfach der Preis und die Leistung. Manchmal sind es bei einem Produkt nur "Kleinigkeiten" wie auch hier.
