Re: E3 problems - again!

It does seem like bad luck and untypical of the e-3, so I hope Peter it is soon sorted out. As this would seem to be a repeat problem with a repaired body I think you would have a good argument for a 'new start' with a new body.

The only times I've persuaded the mirror to lock up is with the Sigma lens when trying to shoot on a subject just wavering in/out of the minimum focussing distance for the lens. Even then it has happened barely a handful of times in just under a year.

Mind you my fingers do have a knack for occaisionally finding the short cut buttons at inconvenient moments, with the button delay set this has caused the odd surprise setting. But that's just big fingers and small buttons.

Hope it's sorted soon.

Medicine as a science ranks somewhere between archaeology and economics. 90 Churches -- Fairford St Mary's, exceptionally splendid
