      Works with Sony Alpha 7r with adapter

            Comments about Metz mecablitz 24AF-1 Digital Flash for Sony Cameras:

            I use this on a Sony alpha a7r with Nikon and Leica manual focus lenses (via those lens adapters). You have to get the Sony 'Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter' to go from this flash to the new Sony body. Flash works as expected in TTL mode; no exposure issues on Fill or Slow-sync mode settings on the camera. The flash sits very solidly on the camera despite the extra height of the flash adapter. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I have to coax the battery door a little bit to get the flash to come on.

                  Comments about Metz mecablitz 24AF-1 Digital Flash for Sony Cameras:

                  I were looking for small and lightweight companion for my NEX-7. Options are limited - Sony HVL-F20AM, would work just fine but AAA and too small GN would not make it much better vs built-in. Let me confess - I am big fan of Metz Flashes, they Auto mode is so good. As result without a doubt I decided to go for 24AF-1. Even if it looks like Vivitar DF-183 or Polaroid PL-108AF - they are not the same! Litle bit different hardware (inside) and very different firmware. Externally, flash looks Metz 20C-2 , tilting head looks flimsy but it is solid enought to survive my multiple trips. IQ? Even if it's fully auto you still have some control - settings on camera (fill/slow sync), tilting and flash comp. In most simplistic way, straight shot - much better compare to build-in plus more power. Reflected from wall/ceiling - tricky but easy to master. From features, IQ and compactness it's really a perfect match to NEX-7 as travel flash. One impossible wish - 'HSS' :) But it's diffrent weight/size category.
