Flo:Godox released their Sony version of the V860 I saw on your blog.
Actually I have been shooting with the version I since a while now and wrote up a little summary of my experience.
No in depth-review with technical stuff – just feedback on the flash/brand during real-life situation on the job. The brand was at least in my network completely unheard off and most people don’t trust it. If the V860II is as good as the 860c, Sony shooters shouldn’t hesitate!
