      If you want a flash unit:
      ... to avoid red-eye, buy it.
      ... to simply point and shoot, without complicated light measuring, buy it. But if you like complicated things, buy it (it can be used on manual mode).
      ... to take pictures of family, pets, gardens etc, buy it.
      ... to have it allways in a (small and lightweight) bag, buy it.
      ... to do everything i mentioned before and take some control on power of flash, buy it.

      If you want a flash unit:
      ...with a tilt & swivel bounce head, forget it.
      ...for large distance coverage, forget it.
      ...for a pro performance, forget it.

      If you, like me, want to have a flash unit to take better pictures on kids' parties or on vacation, you can't go wrong with AF200FG P-TTL. P-TTL mode works great to deliver the correct light on each picture.

      Solid build, there's no cheap plastics.

      Fast recycling with 4x 2900 MAh Pearstone AA batteries (please note that such batteries were all rated as 2200-2300 Mah by new MAha M-9000 charger/analyzer).

      A good handy flash for indoor shots of stationary objects. No bounce makes it marginally useful for serious photos. It doesn't sit high enough to prevent red eye.

      This was a throw in with a kit I bought and I could not recommend it to others.

          It does synch with the TTL for flash. I wish it had the auto focal length adjustment of my older AF330 for my film Pentax SLRs. It does work great, weighs very little, and comes with a pouch to carry it.

          Comments about Pentax AF200FG Flash:

          I needed a separate shoe mount flash that was within my budget but not too complicated to use. This Pentax AF-200FG shoe mount flash satisfied my needs. Since most of my shots that require flash are typically for parties and some indoor events, this add-on flash more than satisfies my needs and saves the battery life of the camera to focus on taking pictures, instead of splitting its power between the camera and its onboard mini pop-up flash.

          Easy to use and mount to camera, fast charge and compatible with most auto mode, built in and quality diffuser for wide light. Battery cover is not useful and it's sense of expense is poor. Made in China, no rotation vertically and horizontally, but very accurate to use light sorce and amount of light. Not a stylish flash, a bit heavy cutting edge to exposure of deformation.Enough durability due to the static body.

                This is ideal as a stronger flash than the onboard flash of the K-X - for everyday situations - parties, fill flash outside, etc. Simple to use and matches up to Pentax K-X perfectly. Haven't had to recharge batteries yet despite using it frequently.
