    32z-1 doesn't have ETTL, you can only use the Auto/Manual mode; for Auto mode, u'll need to set the aperture and ISO on the flash itself. 420EX supports ETTL, so u just have to point and shoot and not worry about any settings (flash metering is pretty accurate too).

    If u're only using it on the G5, then I'll say go for the 420ex. If you're on a budget, then go for the Metz.

    Metz 32 Z1 do not accept SCA adapter so you cant use this flash for your G5.
    There are other models like 32 Z2, 32 MZ3, 40 MZ3i which can use SCA adapter, or dedicated ones like 34 AF-3C, 40 AF-3C, for use on Canon hot-shoe mounts.

    Metz 32 Z1 is one fantastic flash! I dint regret buying it. Most of the time you just need to set it once and use it through out your shoot. Unless you adjust your aperture from f2.8 to f8.. else there's little or no need to adjust the settings at all!
