I recently got the AF200 locally off craigslist from a gentleman who was breaking up a kit. So it was brand new in the box at a good price...and I needed it for an indoor event the day that I bought it, lol.

But if I were setting out from scratch looking for a flash for the Q, I would go for the 201 for sure. With the smaller AAA batteries and the bounce hinge, it makes for a smaller profile in the bag as well as on the camera. The 200 does affect the balance of the Q10 with 01 lens, but I bought it for corded off-camera P-TTL use with my K-5II. The balance isn't terrible, and is probably better with the 02 and 06. As I recall, the 200 has TTL while the 201 is P-TTL only for what it's worth.

Pardon the spur of the moment cell phone shot, but here's a quick view of the 200 on the Q10 for scale. Check out the product views elsewhere of the 200 to see that it is kind of thick from the side view due to the battery compartment.

Hi @filoxophy, where can i buy the case you have for the q s1? I searched it a lot. Thanks so much and sorry for my bad english.

Post photo of AF201FG + Q?

I have just recently bought the newer Pentax AF201FG Flash. It is tiny and very light (2 x AAA batteries), it has nice controls, tilts past vertical and (although it makes no difference on the Q) it is also weather resistant.

It is better in every regard (except recycle time!) than my Metz 24 AF-1.
Would you (or anyone else with an AF201FG and any Q body) mind uploading a picture of this flash mounted on a Q body?

It was a gift, but I believe it was from Amazon. I'll double check. But I have the Q10, so I have no idea if a similar model is made for the Q-S1.
