Subject: [Leica] Leica Flash SF 20

Contrary to other Lugers, I found the 
new Leica Flash SF 20 really interesting for the R8
and the old M5, M4-2, M4-P and M6.


For the R8, it is small and perfect for fill-in.
There is a flash exposure correction in TTL mode
+/- 3 EV in 1/3 EV steps.
That kind of flash was missing in the Metz SCA system.

For the older Ms with hot shoe, the A mode allows
for three lens apertures: f/2,8, f/5,6 and f/11
from ISO 25/15 to 800/30.
There is a flash exposure correction also in A mode,
(but only from 0 to -3 EV in full EV steps).

I may put it on my Christmas list.
