Comparison review of AF540-FGZ and Metz 58

I noticed a small error in the review of the Metz mecablitz 58 AF-1 digital, at the start of the section The Flash Head, W/A Diffuser, and the Reflector cards. In it, we read:
"Shown above are the heads of the two flashes. ... You will note that the Diffuser on the Metz is pushed in. This is a feature that the Pentax does not have. On the Metz we can push the W/A diffuser back into the flash head leaving only the reflector card exposed. The Zoom head however remains zoomed at 18mm (35mm format) and is fixed at that setting. You can also push the Reflector in leaving the diffuser out. Talk about Options!"
On the Pentax flashes, both AF-540 FGZ and AF-360 FGZ, the diffuser screen and white catchlight card may be deployed either separately or together.

Oh yes, I very much like the "540" and "360" flashes.
