Thread: Flash for K5 and Kx

    Default Flash for K5 and Kx

    Hi guys,

    I am looking for a flash with P-TTL for my K5 and Kx. Been doing some research and shorted the following

    1) Metz 58 AF-1/2
    2) Sigma EF-610 DG Super

    Which is a better choice and where can I get them . SLRR only sells Pentax flash. Are the other 3rd party flash with similar specs as the above and where can I get them?

    Thanks.

    I don't think Sigma is a good choice... but the Metz also, sometimes doesn't TTL well.

    think thats a pttl problem. it is not consistent. in the metz 58 AF 1 or AF 2. Metz own "AUTO" mode function better n more consistent then pttl.

    Wow S$400. There will be a good deal but I wonder does it comes with international warranty or local.

    It doesn't have international warranty, only local HK warranty, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    Couple months ago, SLR quoted S$620.00
    I bought mine in HK last year for S$550.00
    Have to be known warranty for HK set is local.
    Later, I gather with couple of S$ saves do not justifly myself buying from HK.

    I agreed, if $550 in HK, I will rather buy in Sg with warranty.
