Assuming they don't offer a way of turning the flash off without folding it down, then the old model + adapter might actually be better. At least there, you can fold it down and take the adapter off, making it slightly easier to store. It's easier to take the adapter on/off rather than pulling the batteries out.

I'd be surprised if Sony didn't think of that, tho, and offer a different way of turning the unit off.

As far as I have seen the pictures there is no on/off button - again. I am now really happy I did not wait and bought the 'old' flash plus adapter. So I can use it on a77 and NEX-6 and it can - with adapter off - easily be transported. Not to mention that the set was cheaper than the new flash!

I was waiting hard for a new 20-flash with ISO-shoe, but I would never ever excpected it this bad from Sony!
