Metz 58 AF-1 Expert Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Metz 58 AF-1 and writes;
“Using the flash in TTL mode is the easiest and it’s the mode where you don’t have to do anything. When the flash is hooked up to different models, you can get different extra modes. The Nikon D90 had TTL BL added which is a fill-in flash mode. Rear curtain sync is available on the Metz which is great for longer exposures and catching the subject as the curtain closes making long trails of light look more natural sitting behind the moving subject. “

Photo-tips-online reviews the Metz 58 AF-1 and writes;
“Extended zoom is a mode that sets the flash zoom one position back from the “normal” zoom position. For instance, if the lens is set to 50mm, Metz 58 AF-1 sets its zoom to 35mm when the extended zoom mode is enabled. This makes the light spread to the sides more and reflect off of walls and a ceiling, filling in the shadows created by the direct flash light. In our opinion, this may come in handy, but we don’t see a great value in this mode.”
