There's a lot more to it than that. TTL flash gives you more accurate
exposures if you are using filters. It also gives more accurate exposures
in macro (Visoflex folks can benefit) and it lets you use ANY aperture. Not
the case with a 283 or 285 or other auto flashes. Metz tend to give more
aperture selections.

Be nice to people on your way up because you'll need them on your way down.
