DS2 and TTL flash

Can someone confirm if the DS2 supports TTL flash? I know the D and DS do, but am wondering about the DS2.

Thanks,

Yes it does. I use my DS2 with my older 500FTZ flash (TTL not P-TTL).... and it works relatively well up to ISO 800.

This concurs with the manual. I have had to dial in a -0.7EV compensation tho... (tends to overexpose a little bit)

Works pretty well.. but you really gotta be careful for anything that reflects a lot of light (Mirror or anything shiny). It really fools the meter and causes the flash to underexpose quite a bit.

Hope this helps

thanks...

Exactly what I wanted to know. I found conflicting information on the web and was hopeful someone would have one and could confirm.

Thank you.
