Hi Brian,

Why did it take a year to correct the A77/A65 flash problems, why the poor (tall) implementation of the F20 replacement, why is there no flash extension cord for the new hotshoe (low profile)? Using the adapter sucks!

I agree

Why didnt Sony just do it the other way around.  Leave the old hotshoe and include an adapter for Standard flashes?

Why is that adapter so big?  I would think they could make it smaller.  Or recess the shoes, so you could swap plates(between standard and minolta).

The current implementation is a disaster, when you look at that remake of the F20am flash.
