With Metz flashes, you should be able to get a very wide range of apertures
to use. But then, you also probably need to use Velveeta <G> or PKM, and
similar slow films. The benefit being that you get much better results from
using slow films. And when you're doing all that stuff, a tripod isn't
going to slow you down much.
