This is the reason I'm going to order the automatic model. If it was just me, I'd get the semi, but she is really bad at timing shots, and I doubt she will bother to use a timer. I'll likely just use it in manual most of the time.
I'm placing my order this afternoon. Really looking forward to this.
I think you are probably making the right choice. While the semi can give you better results it takes more dedication to wring the most out of it than most people are willing to put in. Nothing wrong with that either. You may actually have better things to do with your time than worry about flushing times and grind settings. The super will give you decent results, consistently.
