I'm not so sure that love is the main reason for this. I would be a bit careful if I used anything third-party, such as lenses, batteries or flashes...

I get the battery thing but why do you mention lenses and flashes? When has Sony broken 3rd party E-mount lenses or even 3rd party A-mount lenses?

I used to use Phottix Odin wireless triggers and flashes. They worked well until Sony did a FW update to introduce their own wireless flashes.

I don't use my Odin triggers frequently but just tested them on my A7RII with two F60M flashes after reading your post and don't see any problems. Can you explain further?
