Does anybody know the physical size of these flashes, which one is smaller in size. Is Metz considered to be a higher end flash?I know it's range starts at 28mm which will be good with the wcon o8b.I will be using it on the FZ20.Just found the Metz web site and noticed how the manual zoom zooms.Is it tight feeling when you move it, what is the built quality like.Is it good quality PLASTIC? I know alot of questions!

You can find the specs on many vendor web sites for both (and the specs for the Metz on the Metz web site, too). Here are the pages with specs at B&H for both flashes:

Metz 36-CS2

Sunpak 383 Super

Note that non-dedicated auto thyristor type flashes tend to be relatively inexpensive on the used market. So, you may want to consider looking around on the used market for a flash, too.

I don't know about the 36-CS2, butthe Metz I haveare made of very durable plastic.

Metz are among best choice regarding durability and reliability.
