Meanwhile I enjoy the preparations of the launch, the pre-launch, the teasers: one dude is pushing the shadows of the teaser movie to see the controls, interfaces and whatever - better said, to guess them. the other dude is taking a profile shot, measures the hot-shoe and calculates all visbible and possible dimensions.
The only thing is,I never saw a hot shoe 25 mm long. The three (!*) I checked, were 15, 16.7 and 16.9 mm long.

And in the US it's still not easy to buy a D850, out of stock for months. So there's on dude like Dagobert Duck piling them in his safe?
