Yes!

I've had massive overexposure problems, discussed in numerous threads to no avail.

Someone just mentioned the Gary Fong lightsphere (which I use whenever I have a good ceiling) being heavy enough to loosen the connection. I'm double checking the hotshoe screws as we speak, but still think the flash itself has developed a wiggle. And now that you mention it, every once in a while I can't get the flash assist beam to fire. Chalked it up to user error....

Who decided this locking mech. was better than the old wheel anyway...

I am having this problem as well. I have to push it down tighter to the hotshoe for it to fire. Sent it to Canon and they said they repaired it. Shot a wedding the following weekend and it failed me ones again. I called them again to send it back. I am frustrated with this.

Maybe the camera's hotshoe is getting a little sloppy?
