    Metz 36 AF-5 reviews

    mecablitz 36 AF-5 digital Flash for Olympus/Panasonic/Leica Cameras is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, But Not Ideal Used with Panasonic FZ-150. Metz website listed this unit as compatible. The good news is that exposures are top rate and flash is easy to use. Also I purchased it on sale for a very reasonable price. Infrared focusing assist on the flash unit does not work. Fortunately the assist built into the camera does. The battery cover is flimsy and difficult to open. I anticipate it will break before too long. (In fact the 1st unit I received had a defective battery cover. I contacted Metz and they told me to return it for another. B&H customer service was very accomodating) All in all I am pleased with the purchase for the price, but next time would spend a few more dollar for a better product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice flash I got this flash to use on a GH2 and like the way it integrates into the camera very well. Is a nice compact flash that does not make the GH2 top heavy. Works much better than the built-in flash of the camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fantastic so far Works great with my Panasonic Lumix G2. Because it is my first flash and just recieved it, I cannot comment on this product much, but it seems to recharge fast (1-2 sec.). I agree with the negative comments about the battery compartment. Just be careful with it and secure it tightly. I do wish it had a metal mount too, it's plastic. Fires evertime. Only 4 stars because of the battery cover.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not The Right Stuff This is the first Metz disappointment I have EVER experienced. I've been a dedicated Metz user for as long as I've been shooting and never until now thought that Metz failed miserably. Firstly, it arrived DOA. Regardless of that it is a very poor build. The battery compartment cover is so flimsy that I'm sure it will break under light use... that is if you can even get it to stay closed. I returned it immediately and moved up to the Metz 44 AF-1 (which hits a home run in every regard).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice flash, not too heavy Provides ample additional lighting; better than on-board flash. Adds professional look to photos. Great bounce capability.
    Date published: 2012-03-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good match for Leica V Lux I chart with B&H and confirmed the item is made in Germany, (I had a really bad experience with a China made Metz) when the item arrived, there are no marking of where the product was made. But the product is working fine with my V-Lux, it is much stronger than the camera build in flash. The response time is fast and the TTL is working.
    Date published: 2015-04-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but construction seems awfully cheap There aren't many choices for an aftermarket flash for the Leica Vlux114. So I went with a couple of camera shops' recommendations for a Metz. The flash itself works OK but the battery housing has a lid on it which is extremely cheap and doesn't come off or close easily. I have to struggle with it and it just doesn't seem like it's made well. The flash was locked in to the camera and yet fell off last weekend. The parts are cheap plastic and I foresee a problem in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I use it with Panasonic GX-1 because fast recycle time.
