Now the seller is trying to tell me the Metz 48 isn't suitable for Pentax and has offered me the Pentax 360 instead. I sent him links to the review section on this forum in reply.

Good for you. I used my Metz 48 last night on my Pentax camera via TTL and it worked just fine. Did you buy it used?

And the latest.. Hi,

I have checked Ebay.com and Amazon.com to buy either the 48 or 50 and it is out of stock in both places. There is an ebay seller selling them from Israel, but I would not purchase this one.
I will keep searching to try to fulfill with a brand new one.

Bah If I get a refund now, I'd get $220 back and have lost the $70 postage I paid on top.

$70 postage is the cost of them posting me the dud flash and then me having to post it back to the US.

Thanks Taiweitai, I have let the seller know this.

the chance of a used Metz 48 show up at gumtree/craiglist is pretty slim TBH

The seller has told me he's ordered me a Metz 48 off Amazon but I can't see any listings on there for any, anymore. Last time I did see them advertised on there a couple of days ago, the listing said that they may not be getting any more in and that they were out of stock.

It looks like I'm not going to be getting that flash at all now.

I bought one from the seller in Israel last year. I'd tried just about everywhere and nobody had stock. This was just after the announcement of the 50, but before it started shipping regularly. I don't think you'd have enough time to get it shipped from Israel.

If time is running out, the Metz 50 is available locally for $340 (eg Cambuy.com.au) - $360 (eg digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au). Both with CRK warranty
