Everyone who uses a Leica M knows that the flash attachment options are not up to the outstanding standards of, for example, the best of flashes available for a Canon or a Nikon. That said, this flash comes closest to a fool proof, no fuss, TTL flash for a Leica that one can buy. If you need a flash for your Leica M get this one!

While this flash is relatively simple to operate, once you get the hang of it, Leica's instruction manual certainly could be improved.

I have never been a big user of flash units. That is why I use Leica cameras, for their portability and fast lenses. I got this unit as a gift and it has helped to reinvigorate my photography. I am shooting in places that I never did before. The TTL on my M and R series cameras produce beautifully lit photos. I am so glad someone was smart enough to go against my wishes and buy me something that I have been putting off far too long.

Great flash with tons of power. This is the only flash to get if you own one of the Leica cameras with TTL capability. Some have criticized this unit as being too big for the Leica rangefinder cameras. I don't agree with this assessment. It is not excessively heavy and works well with the M9. It does take some practice to be able to use this flash. The instruction manual leaves a bit to be desired so you need to actually take the flash in hand and play with its many options. After going thru the menus on the flash it will become obvious how to use them. Just be aware that the manual is not that helpful. All in all, if you can afford a Leica, don't skimp on the flash-get the best available.
