    Has anyone used the Sunpak PZ-5000 flash with their FZ20? This seems to be
    moderately priced at around US$150, and it appears to have a few worthwhile
    features.

    Hopefully the PZ-5000's hotshoe voltage is compatible with the FZ-20's
    limits.

    The PZ-5000 has an LCD display, and it allows setting the f/stops in the
    range f/2 to f/16 in full stops. This would allow one to (easily) use f/2.8
    and therefore gain better control of depth-of-field, as well as extending
    the range of the flash, especially for bounce flash use. It also allows ISO
    setting 6-6400 in 1/3 EV steps. It has a "zoom" button, which may allow you
    to manually set the flash head zoom to better suit the focal length being
    used (28-135mm coverage in 35mm format).

    However, the PZ-5000 flash is a dedicated flash. Has anyone used the
    version of the PZ-5000 that is dedicated to Nikon or Canon SLRs with their
    FZ20?
