AF Light not working with Alpha glass is huge....

-the autofocus assist DOES NOT work with flashes, when you mount a sony flash and are using standard FE-mount lenses, the camera will still try and use its awful orange light instead of the much subtler red grid from the flash. AF assist light will not work at all with alpha glass.

This is a huge oversight, and the first thing I noticed. It renders the LAEA4 partially pointless, since the native E glass will autofocus in lower light since it uses the assist light.

The LAEA4 is only useful for medium light, which isn't why I bought the thing.  I wanted to be able to replace my A99, which is not possible because of this oversight.
