Metz Flash (s) and the K30

Metz released updates for the 48 AF-1, 50-AF-1, 58 AF-1 & 2 flash units dealing specifically with the Pentax K30 and the K5II.

They are dated 6-18-2013. Sorry if this had been posted before, if so I guess I missed the posting.

For the 58AF-2 the most important fix for me is the HSS mode. It didn't work at all with K-30 before this fix but now it's fine. Also I have the feeling that it generally gets more correct exposure after the update but I haven't used it enough to be sure about that.

I upgraded my 48AF-1, I always had problems when bouncing flash. After I updated the flash and the K30 I tested both HSS and bounce and both seem to work infact pttl seems to also work well. I had no overexposed shots if anything I may have a couple of underexposed shots by maybe 1/2 stop.

All in all I'm very happy with the K30 and Metz combination after the firmware upgrades.
