Is the metz 58AF-1 compatible with a 645NII ?

Hi everyone

I've contacted metz support and asked them if the 58AF-1 was usable in TTL with a 645Nii. Their answer was quite evasive, asking me which kind of dSLR it was, and telling me that I if my camera supported P-TTL, the flash would be compatible if I was using the Pentax version
Basically no answer.

So, has anoyone tried to use the 58AF1 on a 645nii ? Does it communicate the focal length as it does with the 540FGZ ? Is there special care to take ? (appart from using a speed slower than 1/60 or a LS)

Thanks for the heads-up

I haven't tried this combo, but the Metz 48AF1 does TTL with my 645 and 645N, so it seems likely that the 58AF1 would work as well. (I don't know about focal length, I probably haven't tried it with any modern lenses.)

Thanks, I guess that there should be no issue if TTL is working properly with the 48AF1.
