Are you talking about the fact that the A77/A77II pop-up can be pointed down from horizontal? I guess that's nice, but it usually ends up throwing light on the lens instead of on the subject. I'd prefer that it could be pointed up, close to vertical, for bouncing.

I agree here. Pointing the flash down isn't useful to me.
