This flash is very flexible with the unique rotating head. Very dependable and consistant exposure. I started with the HVL42-AM which is a nice unit but the 58 is better in every way except bulk/weight. The two flashes team up nice for off camera work, creating a nice portable studio-like setup. I got this flash on sale at $400 and am thinking about getting a second one making my Sony portable flash investment over a grand. Worth every penny IMO.

I've used the HVL-F42am for quiet some time now and I am starting to play with off-camera lighting with small flash unit. Decided to get this flash for it's capability of acting as a master control unit to utilize my F42 as a slave. I also do on-camera lighting for family events which I love bouncing light all over the place... All I have to say is WOW!! I think this is the most flexible flash out there. The quick bounce helps you direct light in almost any direction you want withough nuking your subject with direct flash. I have to tell you, I am like a kid with a new bike. I can't put this puppy down. Now I just need to order myself light stand and umbrella and of course extra batteries to start playing with off camera lighting for close potraits... Comparing it to the F42, I would have to say that I find this flash to be much smatter with compensating exposure. My F42 is at times off which I constantly have to chimp off the LCD to adjust for less/additional flash exposure... with this puppy, seems like it's more on-point than the F42. If you are debating between F58 vs F42, Trust me... You wanna go with F58. If you want to expand your off-camera, you can then even get the cheaper flashes for off-camera and do some cool stuff.... Happy shooting my friends!!
