That is a big disappointment; just so happens i was testing the flash for the first time yesterday in total darkness and sure enough could not get the AF assist to do its job; no luck. only the AF-A on camera works. But the camera would never take the shot because it could not find focus in that darkness . The AF-A on the A7 does fire but it is not powerful enough to bounce a beam beyond a certain distance although it is within the flash coverage area. This is totaly unacceptable for Sony to make their most powerful flash partially compatible with the A7 A7R.

so do you know any other big flashes from Canon or Nikon or whatever that will assist mirrorless camera AF (whatever brand is - like Canon flash assisting canon eos-m, etc) ? just curious...
