    I got my 42AM last month and I truly am beginning to love it. It even makes pictures taken with my kit lens look "Good". Enjoy and learn lots.

    Woody, I would add +.7-1EV or so to that flash, it's a bit dark (or if the flash is maxed out since you're shooting at F/8, ISO100, set the ISO to 200 to buy you another stop).
    Thanks for the advice dr4gon. I probably should of had the iso to 200. I was just excited to even shoot a moving object indoor with that lens at iso 100.

    When I had my Sigma, Auto ISO automatically set itself to ISO400.
    The lower the ISO the more the flash has to work and the longer the recycle time will be.

    I did find the recycle time was a little much on some occasions. I thought it was a AA battery issue

    But that changes your ratio of ambient to flash as well.

    Yep it sure does. However it did not matter when bouncing too much but it is more of a concern when pointed at the subject where the background goes too dark with low ISO/High SS!
