Re: HVL-F60M on A7

That is a big disappointment; just so happens i was testing the flash for the first time yesterday in total darkness and sure enough could not get the AF assist to do its job; no luck. only the AF-A on camera works. But the camera would never take the shot because it could not find focus in that darkness . The AF-A on the A7 does fire but it is not powerful enough to bounce a beam beyond a certain distance although it is within the flash coverage area. This is totaly unacceptable for Sony to make their most powerful flash partially compatible with the A7 A7R.
