[SOLD] Metz 58 AF-1 Flash (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FS: Metz 58 AF-1 Flash

Asking Price
$315 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
FS: Metz 58 AF-1 Flash

The Metz 58 AF-1 is considered among the best powerful smaller strobes available for Pentax P-TTL lighting. The flash has a built-in diffuser as well as a white card reflector for catchlights. It tilts and swivels. The coolest feature is the small front lamp that provides outstanding fill when shooting in "A" mode and P-TTL. You can also use this strobe in Manual and control output to 1/256th increments. The flash takes 4 AA rechargeable batteries (not included) and lasts for a few hundred shots per charging cycle.

A great thing about the 58 AF-1 is that you can upgrade the firmware via USB. This flash has been upgraded with the latest Metz firmware for Pentax compatibility.

Also included are: a stand, the original box, documentation, and a nylon case with a belt loop (not pictured below).

This flash has worked great for me on both my K10D, and my K20D. I have also heard that it works just fine with the K-7. There are a few small barely noticeable surface scratches on the back of the body from normal use but it is merely cosmetic.

My reason for selling is that I'm entering a Strobist phase with my Pentax cameras and am using ancient strobes on manual.

$315 PayPal only; free shipping within ConUS, other locations please PM.

Thanks for looking.

Would this work fine with a K-x body? Would any features fall off?

As a P-TTL flash, I believe that this flash would work just fine with the K-x. The K-x has been out long enough for any firmware tweaks to be implemented by Metz (if any were even needed)--and this flash's firmware has been updated to the current version earlier this year.

I've tested this on a K-x before and it works perfectly fine, though I didn't test it too extensively. It's a fantastic flash and anyone who can afford it should grab this deal, I know I would.

No relation to the seller, but I used this flash on loan for a great deal this past summer and loved it.
