Actually, all of the gee-whiz-golly features that one expects with TTL flash are not there on the M. It can't set sync, and it even has no idea what the Fstop you have set --- Remember, it is an all manual camera! You select the Fstop on the flash, say 5.6, put that on the lens, set the camera to sync or slower and everything looks wonderful. If you change your apature it will either under or over expose your flash. As for viewfinder sisplay, there is a cute little lightning bolt when the flash is charged. yes, in operation it is not much different from a thyristor flash, but the results are incredible! ;) jim Jim Tiemann _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.
