  • Excerpt: I bought my copy used from KEH, in EX condition. I got it to supplement my AF 540 FGZ. Compared to the 540 it is nearly as powerful, a little slower to recycle, and a little simpler in the control layout. Of course it doesn't do P-TTL, and I bought it to use in manual mode.
  • Pros: Manual settings, controls, power
  • Cons: Recycle time not quite as fast as AF-540 FGZ

  • Excerpt: I give 10 to this lens even though it does not have P like in P-TTL, it only does TTL. I use it as slave and flashes wonderfully. I use it in a studio for portraits and for photographing small items in a box. I also have an AF360FGZ that I use also as slave or as master. The two work wonderfully.
  • Pros: Best looking and built flash by Pentax, wonderful and useful
  • Cons: It cannot be used as a master or control, but as slave, but that is the way I use it

  • Excerpt: Great flash! Yes, it lacks PTTL, but has high power (GN 50), great manual control and it communicates nicely with my DSLR, which many inexpensive flashes don't do. The camera knows there is a flash present and it zooms with my DA lens automatically or manually from 24 to 85mm (it's smart enough to...
  • Pros: Bright, zooms, bounces, swivels, compact for power
  • Cons: Manual only with DSLR

  • Summary: El Pentax es un flash que por su multifuncionalidad resulta de mucha utilidad y facilidad de manejo, aún cuando en ocasiones de mucha luz no nos sea de mucho agrado por el hecho de ser muy fuerte al no utilizar el difusor.
  • Pros: calidad
  • Cons: Por ahora ninguna
