      Comments about AF360FGZ II Flash for Pentax DSLR Cameras:

      This is my first Pentax flash I brought it for my K5 while it was on sale.
      Other than just trying it out I haven't had a chance to use it much.
      It seems well made and easy to use both on the camera and in the wireless mode.
      The LED lamp is nice to have.
      I was taking some Micro pictures on a table top and I needed some extra light I set the flash unit on the stand that came with it turned on the LED light and that gave me the extra light I need.

        Comments about AF360FGZ II Flash for Pentax DSLR Cameras:

        I am a beginner to using flash and have found this flash to be very easy to use with my K-50. It is very bright and works great in low light conditions. I would definitely recommend.

          Comments about AF360FGZ II Flash for Pentax DSLR Cameras:

          This was my first Pentax flash so I can't compare it to the previous version. I picked this one up mainly for it's weather-resistant construction to match the K-3. The learning curve on this one is very easy to get into and start using the manual settings and wireless features. It's a dramatic increase over the standard pop-up flash. My only complaint would be that it does not have an internal bounce card to extend.

          Comments about AF360FGZ II Flash for Pentax DSLR Cameras:

          It is my first flash and I don't have much to compare to. I have purchased it along with diffuser during the special sale event and I must say that it made instant impact on my indoor and low light photos. I have been using the flash in the automatic mode most of the time but the pictures are truly worth it. Cant wait to get the second flash!

            Comments about AF360FGZ II Flash for Pentax DSLR Cameras:

            This version seems to be much improved over the AF360FGZ. It even comes standard with the flash stand now which means you don't have to buy the stand as an accessory. I've not had the time to use it extensively but in my limited use I find it to be very well made. I'm well pleased with it.
