Multifunction Hotshoe - No, no, no
2

Did Sony recently aquire Canon or eventually OM Digital solutions!?

Goodness, no please. Sony managed to introduce a MF Hotshoe a while ago. Initially you were not even able to mount a standard device for standard hotshoe. Overtime, Sony adjusted and they modified the crappy hotshout. Still not all cases you can fix a center pin trigger and align properly on a Sony. You have to buy a Sony compatible flash, or gps, …

Olympus managed to have a series of EM-1 with a crap hotshoe. It died.

Why the heck does Canon add such a hotshoe !!!???

Looks like some OM or Sony managers were on the market and now acting at Canon having bad influence

Lets hope that we are still able to mount generic stuff without the need to cut off plastic on the shoe
