There are a number of possibilities:

1.  Sony underestimated the demand and have not produced enough

2.  Sony is starving the market to encourage purchase of the (M) flashes.

3. Sony has woken up to the undoubted design flaw in the adapter, and has a replacement in the pipeline:

a.  They would rather minimise purchases of the old adapter until the new one is available

b.  They are planning to exchange old adapters for new without charge, but are trying to minimise the cost.

If you believe 3b, you'll believe anything
