    After downloading and reading the instruction manual from the german
    website, I still have a question about the Metz 76 MZ-5 flash.

    If I buy the 76 MZ-5 flash, will i-TTL functionality work with my Nikon

    D70?


    The flash is described as the latest digital flash that functions is
    i-TTL, and D-TTL mode. Do I have to buy a separate SCA adapter, i.e.,
    the SCA 3002, SCA300, or will the Metz 76 MZ-5 work right out of the
    box?


    I was ready to buy one from bandh photo dot com, but am hesitant at the

    moment. I don't want to pay $900 to find out I have to shell out
    another $100+ for some adapter, cable, or controller system.


    When I bought my SB-800, I know what it can and can't do. However,
    this Metz flash has a very confusing description. Below are two
    paragraphs that describe the flash:


    *****************
    The Metz 76 MZ-5 is the flagship model in the Metz handle-mount line.
    Simple to operate, reliable and of course powerful, it can be used with

    lots of cameras when combined with the proper Metz adapter.


    This model will support the advanced TTL systems used with Digital SLR
    cameras: E-TTL flash mode from Canon, i-TTL/i-TTL-BL and D-TTL from
    Nikon or ADI flash control from Minolta.


    ********************
    Does anyone have any input or thoughts?

    From the product information, you need the adapter as well as the flash.
