    Default Tumax flash for Pentax

    Hi there, anyone bought Tumax DPT 586 flash? Any review or comments? Previously I bought YN 560, fail on Me after half a year, a bit wary. Bought sigma 610. find the swivel and tilt abit stiff. Thinking of trying tumax. Is it good?

    Maybe I am just unlucky. I bought one, after trying a few shot, the flash stop functioning. Luckily, the shop willing to refund me as they don't have any stock left for replacement.

    Why not get the Metz 50AF as it cost about $400 thereabouts.
