M6TTL and SF26?

I'm in the market for a small flash for my M6TTL. An SF20 seemed like the obvious answer, but I was curious if the newer SF26 works with the M6TTL? More specifically if TTL is supported with that combo.

Googling provided no definitive answers...

Thanks.

The flash has was designed to be controlled using the cameras menu so there is no way to make adjustments when mounted on an analog camera.

Thanks, I'll stick with getting an SF20 then. Don't need anything fancy anyway, just some occasional fill. Should do the trick.

There is a later model than SF20, the SF24, which offers more control if you want to do weak fill flash. I'll look up details if you're interested.

The SF24D is a great flash. I use it with my M6TTL. TTL works and there is no pre-flash which I like.

Digging this back up, I now have an M10 in addition to my M6TTL. Looking into flashes again, something that can work for both hopefully.

With the SF26, I understand that it needs a digital camera's screen to adjust any settings. But, will it still meter TTL with the M6TTL? I'd of course not have the option of flash exposure compensation etc. Just curious if it would be able to work for basic fill flash, and expose properly.

Thanks.
