Summary: I have hope! I am working to find out more about the flash. I was sold on the high volume of pictures I would be able to take with one battery, but so far I can only get it to take 5 to 10 shots. I was also expecting more power for large groups?? So far I can only get the auto setting to work with my camera.
Summary: Auto Zoom feature is poor. Problems Encountered: I bought a Metz 76 MZ-5 Digital Handle Mount flash and received a defective unit from Metz. I sent it in to Bogen Imaging (Metz' USA distributor) for replacement or servicing. Even though the unit was defective out of the box and was sent back to them a few days after purchase, they would not replace it. Even though their web site promises 8 days turn-around time for repairs, they have had my unit for over 6 weeks now.
