    Metz AF-2 reviews

    mecablitz 26 AF-2 Flash for Olympus/Panasonic/Leica Cameras is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Small Camera Flash This lightweight Metz unit is used as my on-camera (Pen F) TTL bounce flash, or as a slave powered by the small Olympus FL-LM3 flash. It can light up a small room with a white ceiling. No need to do calculations as you are either on TTL or slave setting on the slider switch. This is an amateur flash, not intended for weddings or other pro work. It can easily fit in a shirt pocket. It's powered by one AAA battery with descending recycle times starting from almost instant to up to 8 seconds. As a retired pro photographer I recommend this Metz for occasional/limited flash photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right flash The mecablitz by Metz is just the perfect companion for my Leica Q. At 1/4 the cost of their named Leica model, how can you miss. Great flash for those photos needing a little flash assist.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and small I purchased this for my Panasonic gx7 and lx7. It worked as expected using the ttl feature. Build quality is good (made in germany) and the size really match on both my cameras. The only issue is the power is not that strong but far way better than the pop-up flash. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FOR THE LECIA Q This flash unfortunately will not work with the Leica Q - the centre pin is about 0.5mm too far back. AKA Leica has you in deep at this point.
