Ahoy again shipmates!

I don't know anything about SLT models or the E-Mount system, but I found the adapter that connects the original 4-pin mount to the new mount which is the ADP-MAA and there are several on eBay (UK) of which this one appears to be the cheapest, so whether the adapter is the correct one or not I have no clue, but it seems to me that it is, and of course there may be a loss of some functions, so I'm sure the OP will have far more qualified advice than I could ever offer and hope the matter is resolved, but what flashgun make/model is being discussed?

Thanks for the recent advices.

I have the HVL-F58AM that I've been happy with for use with my Sony A77.

I sold the A77 and bought an A7. So now I have to either get a new flashgun or to find a way to use the old one. I was hoping for some small wireless trigger to appear..
But as "Pirate" mentions, the cheapest and probably best in my case is to buy an ADP-MAA.. And just put the flash on top whenever needed.

... and to buy an HVL-F20M or -AM for WL flash. You can pick up the -AM versions quite cheaply s/h and if you have the adapter anyway, it will work. I prefer to use -AM flashes even on my MIS-shoe cameras because they are much more secure. A MIS-shoe flash tends to come off, I find. With the ADP-MAA or equivalent, the adapter locks onto the camera with a knob, and the flash locks onto the adapter with it's own lock. Perfect!
It even pushes the flash a bit futther away to avoid red-eye! ...
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

Update: Received the Pixel Adapter from china last week.
Tested a few shots indoors, and everything seem ok.

So I don't have the wireless option, but will manage for now.
