    I just bought an HVLF43M flash for my NEX6. All works perfect except for the AF-assist light on the HVLF43M.
    Alle settings were checked with Sony Customer support, but still no AF-light.
    On the NEX6 the light goes on even with the HVLF43M attached to the camera.
    I checked this also on an NEX6 from a friend and there the results are thesame.
    Does anybody have the AF-light on the HVLF43M working in combbination with an NEX6?

    Thanks in advance

    I read somewhere the AF assist light only works on real PDAF... not CDAF or hybrid. Therefore it's disabled when mounted on the nex.
