Does anyone else find the Leica flash situation confusing?

Recommended Posts

After an experiment with the SF58 (which I thought had a crackpot interface) I use a 'Nikon' Nissan Di700a and wireless 'air commander' with my Q and my SL. I use it completely manually - which isn't too bad if you spent the earlier part of your life with a Vivitar 283, plus modern digital cameras give us the chance to take a test shot and see how we are doing. I wouldn't mind the opportunity to use a flash TTL and of course high speed synch on the SL would be nice - though that's not such a problem with a Q of course. Have we formed the impression the new C1/SF60 will allow this?  I feel so bruised by my experience with the SF 58 (which I could only ever operate manually) that I was wary about the Leica 64 and sf40 flashes. Anyone have advice to offer for a TTL solution including wireless control? Has anyone actually set eyes on a C1 wireless commander? Of course it would be lovely if I could buy one of those and continue using my di700a but nothing in life works like that.
