Hell I've got a couple of those, what I want is a working AF200T, it fits in my little tiny bag with the M85 f2.0 and A 24 f2.8 and is good for a bit of extra illumination in a pinch.

The AF280T is relatively big and bulky, pretends to be a professional unit, but never seems to have enough light output when I really need it.


But I'll keep that offer in mind.  You never know.

I was using the AF200T with my digital cameras, and been pretty happy with
the results.  Sure it's not P-TTL, but as far as it goes, having it's own
sensor, the fact that it actually sets the recommended f stop and shutter
speed when the camera is in program mode with an A class  or later lens, was
convenient.

It also worked well with K/M lenses though it obviously loses even the small
amount of automation supported with modern digital interface cameras.

Within it's limited parameters it gave good exposures, is compact, and now
it's broken.  It just stopped firing, either when mounted to the camera or
when the test button is pressed.  Based on that I'm pretty sure that I know
what's wrong, it has a blown secondary capacitor.

It would probably be an easy fix, if I had a schematic, but finding the part
without one wouldn't be cost effective, let alone the effort involved, for a
flash I could probably replace for $10.   Worse it would probably cost more
than that to order the capacitor.

Sometimes I miss Radio Shack.
