I have recently accquired a Metz 45-CL3 flash gun. The gun is compatible with the SCA300 module system - has anyone used this system with either an LX or MZ5n? I would be interested in how well this system works in comparison with my AF400T. Basically what I am after is a view on whether its worth tracking down a Pentax module or just using this gun with my older K2s.

In my experience Metz Flashguns with SCA Modules dedicate very well with Pentax Autofocus Cameras.
I use Metz 45CL4, Metz CT60 and Metz 40MZ2 Flashguns with appropriate SCA Modules on my Pentax MZ5n, MZ5 and MZ6 cameras. I find the TTL results are excellent and reliable. You also have the option of switching the camera to manual and making use of the Metzs' vast number of auto computer settings (ideal for fill-in flash). The SCA module that dedicates with the autofocus cameras has an infrared spot-beam device which assists the camera to autofocus.
I also have a Pentax AF400T Hamerhead, 280TBounce and 200T Fixed flashguns; but I personally prefer the Metz flashguns.
I hope this helps you in you decision.

Thanks Graham, I appreciate your comments - its always useful to get the views of others. Looks like I will be tracking down an SCA module now.
