Nicole, not sure how you are getting on with your flash situation, but this listing may be of interest to you.

I have a 540 and a metz 58, otherwise I would be bidding on this myself.

lol Vylen! I would if it had p-ttl.
But.. it does...

Unless you're thinking of something like Wireless or HSS.... cause it doesn't have those.

Ah yep wireless p-ttl. I found it fun to use on my other one.

I wonder, can this be used as a master at all?

After seeing this, I sure won't be using any batteries from Aldi in my K-x...
I came to the conclusion many years ago that using anything electrical from Aldi was asking for trouble...
