Contacts for the Ext Viewfinder? G1-X Mk II

Hi, I think I know that the G1-X Mk II has a standard Canon type hot-shoe, with the usual 5 contacts plus the rail, ie 6 total. Is that correct or are there extra contacts specifically for the Ext electronic viewfinder? Or are the existing contacts dual purpose in some way?

I don't suppose I'm alone in wanting, simultaneously, a viewfinder, an in-lens high sync speed shutter along with a functioning hot-shoe (or at least a pc sync out jack).

Fantasizing badly, I even wandered whether a Pixel TF-321 adaptor would interpose between the G1-X MkII body and the external viewfinder - not very likely, I admit.

Any pointers? TIA
