After having this for a year and a half with moderate use, I recommend this unit to any Pentax user. I was not a fan of flash shots based on my experience with the K3 flash but with this unit, I have had virtually perfect exposures every time. I have had no negative issues whatsoever.

The AF540fgz II was my first flash from the new II generation. I had an AF540FGZ before that. The AF540FGZ II flash had problems which it took Precision months to acknowledge and eventually replace. Although the new AF540FGZ II functioned properly it was frustratingly slow to recycle.

    Compact, fast recycling, PTTL HSS

  • -

    None that are not common to all Pentax flash units. High price.

Definitely the best flash with TTL and HSS available for the Pentax system in my opinion. I like the original 540FGZ that came bundled with my K-3 last year a lot. It was a real reliable workhorse that I've used on several portrait shoots.

If this were a Nikon flash it would be so-so. But in terms of what is available for modern Pentax digital cameras like the K-1 and K-3, this is a good flash. It's compact, the head bounces and swivels (unlike the previous AF360, which did not swivel) and the exposures are usually (but not always)...

I have only just begun playing around with the new AF360FGZ II on my equally new K-1 and can't wait to delve into the units full array of features. Initial impression is that the flash is well constructed and durable.

Makes my indoor shots looks absolutely stunning. It also has High Speed Sync capability so you can shoot with it at extremely high shutter speeds (1/8000th/s if you want to).

I use the product to take pictures. Spare parts are not available. Only option is $160 to repair at factory shop. Bracken has broken twice. Cannot afford repairs

I bought this flash so I would have a TTL option when needed. I chose this one over the AF540FGZ II due to the faster recycle time. It does a good job in TTL. Exposures are correct I would say 90-95% of the time. A few things I am not thrilled about. 1.

Works seamlessly with my Pentax K-3II camera and is very well built.
