Well I must have been lucky because I have bought two SF-20s and 
neither is flimsy. They have worked just fine with no problems. I 
appreciate the thoughtful touches such as: telling you when the flash 
is not correctly connected for TTL operation (I had a bad TTL cord), 
easy compensation setting and the ability to illuminate the panel (it 
is dark after all). My battery door closes nicely and stays shut too 
something that I cannot say about my Vivtar and Sunpak flashes.

My only complaint is that the M6TTL/SF-20 combo will not signal an 
overexposure. This is very unfortunate when you are working with large 
aperture lenses. A R8/SF-20 will signal an overexposure.
