Here's a question I haven't heard yet. The SB-N5 flash has a TINY nib of plastic that latches on the accessory shoe. Is that all that holds the EVF on the V3?

Not sure if you mean the connector but no. There's a sliding in- type "harness" if you can call it that way.

I'm talking about the part that actually keeps the EVF from sliding out. The SB-N5 slides in like any flash would on a regular hot shoe and there is a little plastic catch that drops into a square hole in the accessory port. Here's a quick shot of the bottom of the SB-N5:

Is this the same kind of piece that holds the EVF?
