forth, the deal breaker, the flash system. The hot shoe is aweful just asking for bent pins on flash or hot shoe so you need to use thE caps.. Fine.. But then my flash over heated while shooting a grooms getting ready.. the flash was not even warm to touch. There is no way I would ever trust this set up for a ceremony.. So. Gone. Hope zest build will be better as I though sony was the best of aall manufacturers and I loved the zeiss glass but. I cannot as a professional wedding photographer use this camera

The Flash overheat was probably due to the batteries.  I had the same thing happen to my F58AM.

My AA batteries were burning hot.
