Brian,
Thanks. I'm not sure what I was experiencing when I thought I had a preflash. I went back and checked EXIF data and red eye reduction was definitely off

I want to relabel my post;

"Rantings of a Madman."

Thanks for everyone's help.

Lessons learned:
1) It's usually not the equipment but user error.
2) Use spot exposure for TTL as opposed to TTL-BL
3) Flash cannot compensate for manually set exposure set up to underexpose. ie low iso high f stop high shutter speed
