the 4 pin hotshoe had been around already for almost 15 years
Yep, the digital protocol (uses the fourth pin) dates back to the mid-1980s with the advent of the auto-focus bodies. It has only been since about 2000 that most 3-contact flash such as the AF-280T ceased production and the AF-160C was available until fairly recently.
