Well I hope that's a "real" hot shoe.  My C*n*n G1 supposedly has one
also but non-C*n*n flashes (or at least my old Metz and Sunpak) just
won't fire.  Ain't gonna fork out more cash for a 3rd flash unit just
for the G1.

Also my G1's lens looks suspiciously like the "Zeiss" lens on the Sony
models and both have the same specs - this has been mentioned many
times on the dpreview site.  I wonder whether that's a real or
re-badged Zeiss lens - the Sony doesn't say T* either.  But I heard
the Sony's (or at least the DVs) are made by Kyocera and if that's the
case, perhaps the G1 has a Zeiss lens too.  :)

Looking at the Panasonic LC5, I don't think they had the outer design
approved by Leica before putting it into production - unlike Kyocera
and Zeiss.  ;-)  Different strokes.....
