Big flash on NEX-6/7
I understand your fears. I would expect that the hotshoe should be OK with normal use but if the camera is dropped or swung around with the flash attached then the extra leverage might cause damage. An acceptable compromise might be to remove the flash immediately after use. I would take care if walking through crowds of people.
