    Metz Digital Flash - Any good?

    Does anyone on here use Metz on camera flash? I have a Pentax K200 and am looking for a decent flashgun, I used Metz almost exclusively when I used to use film but am fairly new to digital and would appreciate some advice.
    Cheers

    I have the Metz 48 AF-1 & use it with my K20D. Never had a problem with it & it puts out a good amount of light. Wouldn't mind getting another, probably the 50 version though. The 48 & 50 AF-1's were both upgraded a while back. Much cheaper than the Pentax version to & do just as much I think.
