I'm very happy with performance of Metz 52 AF-1.The only reason of my purchase was FP/HSS capability of this flash. Otherwise I already have a Nissin 466 for TTL function.After all (other than going with Olympus or Panasonic) this is the only credible third party manufacturer which does HSS.Touch...
The previous reviewer was talking about the flimsiness of his unit, I'm not even sure we're talking about the same flash model. My Metz 52 AF-1 is rock-solid. The parts fit with precise tolerance. (Update: The red/ transluscent plastic on the front has some play.
good power output, well-built, full featured, touchscreen
overexposure on bounce with Pentax K-S2
I bought the Metz because I have used them in the past . I shot a Wedding last Sat. I shot about 270 pictures. It did fine. No problems. I will be using it this week. Using it every night at my Church. Hope it does OK.I would recommend this Flash.
I have used Metz flashes for about 35 years with no problems. All the sudden I bought this flash and it doesn't work properly any more. When I flip the head for a bounce, it overexposes terribly. I thought what the heck, I'll get it fixed. The only trouble is Metz has no service centers.
While I have only used this for one family gathering, I am pleased with the results.
Works well on my olympus em5 for indoors flash photography. I have only used it a few times, but the results have been mostly good. I have much to learn about hot shoe flash useage, but using ttl flash with manual exposure mode on camera works well.
Works great in manual or TTL mode. Much cheaper than the Leica flash.
I even used my adaptor but it would not work unless I used the on-camera flash. I tried several different options per the instructions but it would not fire. It may not been the proper type for use on the camera but your description did not indicate it can only be used off-camera.
I'm merely an amateur in using flashes, meaning I don't spend much time tinkering with manual settings, therefore I expect all my flashes to just do their job automatically.
good metering, touch screen, good recharge times, lightweight
