Why Pentax, Why?

Brass is a very strong metal, so I don't think physical support would have been the problem. The part and electronics involved when you're buying in bulk from Chinese vendors shouldn't have been an issue.

Forget for now the possibilities of an external flash or EVF. How much to the bottom line, and how much higher would the retail price have increased to put a hot shoe on the MX-1? This minor addition would not have only opened up more potential accessory sales for Pentax but made an already wonderful camera even better. Maybe the MX-2 will add it?
