Hi all, going to buy a flash and was thinking of the Pentax AF360fgz11 or the Metz 58AF-2 but SRS said the Metz 44AF1 was a good buy at the moment but are they just trying to get rid of their old stock? Is it better to stay with the Pentax brand for future updates ect. Don't use a flash much but with grandchildren now I might be using it a bit more!
Any feedback would be very much appreciated.

Thanks
Brian

The Metz 58AF-2 is a superb flash, that has a host of features and power and for the price you won't find a better P-TTL compatible flash at the price they are currently selling for.

The Pentax flashes are very nice and weather sealed too, but you will pay extra. Think about your flash needs now and in the future and try and buy a flash with enough power for when your skills and needs grow.

Unless you want WR, the Metz.

More power is obvious (you can never have enough), but it also gives you the option of auto-thyristor mode (in case pTTL fails to give correct results).
