Whoever said that is wrong. The R8 has very good TTL flash metering. AND a built in flash meter too. You just can't do both at the same time. Which makes sense. A flash meter isn't going to test the exact exposure of a TTL flash which would change depending on where the camera is pointed at any given minute. With a flash meter, the flash isn't normally going to be attached to the hotshoe. And you don't have to waste film like you do on a Rollei 6001. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch 98% of all statistics are useless.
