    I used to have a 60CT2 and it worked well with the F3. I now have the 60CT4 which also works well with the F3 but I am not quite sure about the 45-CT5. It seems that the 60CT4 uses the same adapter as the 45CT4 but not the 45CT5.

    There must be something wrong with the chart. The chart said that both the 45CT5 and 60CT2 can't be use with the F3 in TTL. In 82 I bought the F3 and I bought the 60CT2 in 83 specifically for its TTL operation. They worked. I don't have the 60CT2 any more so I can't tell which module it was that I used.
     
  3. From what I understand, that is correct. The 60CT2 was the 60-series equivalent of the 45CT5 and took the same 500-series adapters. And yes, the 60CT4 is the 60-series equivalent of the 45CT4.

    Incidentally, the sync cords have different plugs for the different flashes. You can't plug a cord meant for the 45CT4 into a 45CT5, for example.

    Metz 60 CT-2 and 45CT-5 are the only flashes that take series-500 adapters.

    60 CT-4 takes the series 300 adapter.
