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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile
Excerpt: I won't get into all the technical aspects of the Metz 58 AF-2, because that would be a chore for any of the high end flashes. My basic uses are weddings and events. The Metz 58 AF-2 has an easy to learn menu with a quality of light that is exceptional. This is one of the top two flashes in the world, giving a benefit of doubt that there is one better.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Powerful Output
Excerpt: The Metz 58 af-1 is a very good flash, but this 58 af-2 for Canon has got to be considered one of the best flashes on the market. After only taking two photos I knew I made the right choice. The light quality is exceptional. Colors are saturated and defined. I use mine mostly for weddings and events. My flash bulb blew up on the 58 af-1, which wasn't unusual for that model. The reviews say this one more durable. I hope so.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
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 while trying to look through the viewfinder.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Powerful Output

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.
