Hi, can you be a bit more precise about hot shoe tolerance?

It's like they made it ever so slightly too long. So when you come to a physical stop, the TTL pins don't line up well. Not for Nikon OEM flashes, but mostly for 3rd party triggers like Phottix or Profoto. All it takes is a slight wiggle backwards and you hear the trigger/locking pin click into its hole. With the same triggers I've never had this issue with my other Nikon bodies. It was a know issue in its early days with such sophisticated DIY solutions as using a sliver of cardboard to bring the tolerance back in line.

Thanks.. I'll try to keep this in mind of I need to use other makes of flash.
