      I wanted to upgrade my K3 and chose this flash. Too many pros to list, but I love the zoom range and the off camera sync and stand.

      Comments about Pentax AF540FGZ II Flash:

      I am using this flash on a K5iis with great success. I have only used it indoors though and have not had a chance to try outdoor shots with it. So far it does exactly what I need a powerful high end flash to do. I prefer manual mode but shooting with the P-TTL gives great results. I don't think I will ever need a better flash than this.

      Comments about Pentax AF540FGZ II Flash:

      I already owned the older model of this flash and loved it! I recently purchased the Pentax K3 and wanted to get a new flash for my new camera. One of the main reason is this flash is weather resistant as is the camera. So far it has worked far above my expectations would defiantly recommend this flash it is well worth the cost.

        While I try NOT to use on camera flash, I find I have to in many occasions, particularly weddings and events, this is where this small, lightweight flash shines. The High Speed sync works like a charm. Just finished testing that on my 645Z, now to put it to work. The small light in front is a godsend, have no idea why other companies dont follow suit. My only gripe is that its not more powerful. So really, I give it 4.5 Stars.

          Well constructed, smaller than old 540, more efficient and fast... I was waiting long time for Pentax introducing new devices. Finally, the day is in!
