Re: Selling my D800E for WHAT?!?

That is interesting about ADI not working with A7*.  It sure seems to (with 55mm f1.8).  Maybe the TTL just works better on my A7R than on my Nikon D800E/SB910 setup.  The overall performance is unquestionably better, having shot many events with both setups!!

I have avoided the Sony HVL-60M flash due to the overheating problem (didn't want to sent it out to the 3rd party repair center that  modifies the thermistor for $100 to correct the problem, as Sony should have).  I use the 43M and it works extremely well.  So far, in shooting major events, I have not missed the higher Guide Number.  Surprisingly, I have shot in sunlight with HSS and high shutter speeds, with the subjects eight feet away, with good results (wide apertures).
