      Comments about Metz mecablitz 36AF-5 Digital Flash for Sony Camera:

      I use this flash on my Sony NEX 7 and it complements the camera very well. The size and mass do not overwhelm the small camera. It's a powerful enough flash for it's size. The flash can be adjusted to narrow the flash disbursement or widen it as necessary. It is not adjustable, but for a simple flash it does the job.
