best flash for my budget
You might get more help in the Sony SLR forum. I'm not sure how supportive they are but it is active. I don't know about Sony but on other camera brands I've owned the brand flash is easier to use and often has special capabilities. However, if you only want it for off camera capabilities there are better choices.
