It is nothing new, a lot of Canon entry level cameras lack this pin. Look at the 1500, 2000, T7, 4000, 3000 etc, all lack that pin. It even limits certain modes of Canons own flashes.

It is the first I have read about it. It is making the rounds today.

Just checked out both Godox and Yongno websites for compatibility and both brands have models that do work with these Canon bodies.

Quite surprised the fstoppers team didn’t do their research very well here. I suppose journalism isn’t what it used to be. Seems a bit remiss and lazy of them.

True, still seems not a lot of research has been done and instead a bit of bandwagon jumping. I already knew about the older models as my neighbor has one and I gave her a flash (gun, not wearing my long brown raincoat). The flash I gave her worked but I noticed the missing pin at the time. So when I saw your link it sprang to mind and a few seconds of google showed up reports from Jan-Mar 2018. So to me those reporting this are a bit lazy to not do a small bit of research.
