AF360FGZ II first look

I got my AF360FGZ II today. My Mk.I had the dreaded busted battery door (fell off a light stand). Quick rundown:
Metal hotshoe
slightly smaller
MUCH better battery door.
+/- 90 degree swivel
The LED light is pretty cool. It's also a fantastic spot beam for focusing.

The controls aren't quite as easy as the Mk.I. The Fn menu has a bunch of options that are very hard to keep straight because everything is written in code. All the features are menu driven, no hard slider switches.
An example, for wireless slave flash, click it on, push mode 3 times, push set, spin the control wheel two clicks to select slave. It does remember slave settings on a power off, but it will startup in the normal on-camera mode.

Is the auto mode really gone or just omitted from the description?

Looks like it's gone.
