I can still remember your post titled "Don't Shoot the Messenger", with a link to an article that tested flash sytems. They alsoconcluded that Auto modes are more consistent.
No argument here!

I tend to agree too, but an Auto mode system is quite limited especially when it comes to multi-units with various ratio...

This is where the pre-flashes come in where each head is measured separately before the exposure and where they all fire at once for the final shot and all outputing the correct amount for each light!
I'd have to look into the specifics. But, if memory serves, you lose some of the ratio control you had with Minolta film models with their new DSLR models.
