last night while using my flash i noticed with the 50-135 lens, that on the flash at max zoom was indicating 85, and when you depress the shutter button to lock focus the number changes to 58, but yet the zoom position in the flash remains unchanged.
is this 58 representing 85 in 35mm terms
or am i only getting 58 zoom position on the flash because i am using digital?

i am under the impression that with this type of flash, the guide # increases as the zoom increases.

so if the flash is only registering 58, that suppose to mean the we are not getting max power out of the flash



is this so
