cactusgeorge: Has anyone bought an 5N recently? Does the clicking problem persist in the new shipments? Also, has anyone had theirs repaired and want to comment on the 'adjustments' effectiveness?
I just got mine back from Sony and the clicking is gone.
I have the same problem here, just called SONY and they are not owning up to it. First of all, they don't tell you what they are planing on doing, it's just an adjustment. Now I tested the problem and I wasn't on a trampoline doing back flips. I was slowly walking with the camera and you would get a constant click. Sites like this one needs to put the pressure on Sony and issue a DO NOT BUY until they come clean with what the issue is and what they are doing to fix it. I live on the east coast and all sony is doing is sending you a shipping label for ground to go to texas (pretty much 4 days each way, plus 5-7 days to work on the camera. I had to to make a big deal just to be able to get them to upgrade to overnight shipping. And do not send your camera in the original box because they will trash it when they receive it, per customer relations person.
