Hello,
just bought a new D300, realised that it does not come with the flash cover like D80... is this normal? Do the rest of D300 owners also don't have the flash cover? :dunno:

Is it safe if I leave it alone without any cover, worried about accidently spoiling the contact points.... :(

Maybe they left it out for a reason. E.g. if you are doing an event and in the rush, the plastic might be in a way.

I think the cover can reduce the chances of the hotshoe mount being dented and preventing the flash from being attached properly :)

D300 dun come with the hotshoe cover. The one in the plastic is the DK-5 viewfinder eyepiece cap.
