Anyone Using mecablitz 50 AF-1 with K5?

I am looking to grab a flash for my K-5. Coming from Nikon, I used an SB-600 which I thought had plenty of power for my needs. I am curious if anyone is using an mecablitz 50 AF-1 with their K-5 and how do you like it? Anything I should know good or bad before I grab one?

Using 58AF-2

Using the 58AF-2 with the K-5 and I am experiencing problems with over exposure in TTL mode. There have been recent posts on this problem with the K-5. The beauty of the Metz 58AF-2 is that you can shoot in "automatic" mode. Exposures are flawless when in automatic mode. I will continue to use the flash in automatic until Pentax solves the problem with TTL over exposure using flash.
