Anything new in Sony flashes?
8 months ago

I would like to buy a flash for my A57, and I do like the notion of staying with Sony for full integration of all flash functions. I also don't change equipment a lot, so I don't mind paying a bit upfront for features (and brand name, I guess!).

The Sony website currently lists the following that I might consider.

I can certainly read up all the specs, but I wonder if anyone has some simple guidelines to differentiate these models apart from essentially 2 "power" levels. For example, I would like it to fit the camera shoe without the adapter. Availability/out of production info would also be helpful.

I know there has been a lot of dissatisfaction with Sony flashes for overheating problems, so I am wondering if anyone knows if newer releases (i.e., later production runs) may have solved the problem. Or should I seriously consider 3rd party products?

Thanks.

JF
