Metz 58 AF-2 out of stock everywhere?

I can't seem to find this in stock anywhere? It's not discontinued for Pentax is it?

I would get the AF-1 but it's listed as the same price so it seems only worth it at a discount from the AF-2...

I have been thinking of getting a flash myself sometime this spring/summer and have been "watching" it on B&H and other sites. I'm sure it just went out of stock (initial shipment depleted). This flash just came out recently, it would be crazy to discontinue it so soon.

Well, from what I read the features different on the AF-2 are a metal hotshoe, different/different location wireless sensor, and a possible servo feature through a firmware update (last one is a rumor, I think). I would wait for the AF-2, or if urgently needed get the AF-1 if there was a discount.
