    I don't know anything about that one. The Godox TT685N is about the same price:

    I have not used the TT685 but I'm very pleased with other Godox products.

    Generally speaking Metz flashes are top of the line. While I don't own any (they're a tad rich for my blood) I've had opportunity to handle them and see them in action in the hands of professionals who seem to universally swear by them. I'd own of pair of 64 AF-1's in a heartbeat if it weren't for the price-point.

    I did a quick search for reviews from B&H and Amazon but came up empty. Are they made by Manfrotto?

    I own one for Pentax (not this model) and I must say that Metz really make top of the line flash guns. They are on the expensive side.
