I'm sorry I missed the sale!

I'll keep my eyes open, and pay more attention to the forum.  Was the sale announced on one of the rumor sites?

I did try manual with my olympus-wired Metz flash and it worked well on the Nex6.  But I really miss the TTL I get with this flash on my Olympus and Pany cameras.  With the NEX6 I missed a few grandchildren shots as 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16th power was needed, but I could never get it right on the first shot. SHooting RAW was a help.  At least with these "newer" manual flashes I can leave the Fstop where I wanted it (F2.8) and adjust the flash accordingly.  I remember the "old" days when the only way to change the flash exposure was to adjust the Fstop and thereby loose control of your DOF.
