Pros: Bright, Full Featured, Tilt/Swivel, Well built
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

This is a solidly built, fully featured flash. When I bought it I realized I probably didn't need all the features, but thought I'd grow into them, and didn't want to have to upgrade later.


The auto zoom head works perfectly, and P-TTL exposes well. I really like the bounce and swivel, giving many options for lighting on any given scene. Lots of features I haven't fully utilized yet. I won't be able to test the wireless features, since my DL doesn't support it.


Only downside in use that I have found so far is it is fairly heavy - especially on my *istDL, which is a pretty small camera. Creates quite a top heavy camera to hold. It is fairly expensive, but performs up to expectations - I fully recommend it.
