In an interview John Sexton expressed 'A bad day making photgraphs is way better than the best of days working at anything else!'

  • Happy birthday George, from the other end of the empire. I am sure all your many colleagues and friends still attached to the 7D community will also join in saluting your dedication and amazing ...
  • Great to be still (just) in summer. Thanks for the kind words.
  • Sorry to hear that. A 'modest' replacement listed at Photo and Camera http://www.photo.co.nz/2ndhand/2ndproduct.asp?idc=6&idm=-1 (Christchurch, NZ, but they do send overseas) is a 7D with 35-105 ...
  • Replied in Rokkor Diptych
    Lovely atmosphere, very appropriate application. Sure the original makers would have been very pleased to see the pleasure their work brings even after so many years.
  • In my situation I just tabbed the edge of the shutter with an 'earthed' (through my wrist strap) static probe. Shutter worked afterwards; still working a year on. No real technical answer, but it ...
  • Now here's the thing. I too had issues with the FFB syndrome. Phototronics here in my home town came to my rescue several times, and I am very appreciative of the awesome service they provide. Once ...
  • Sigma's problems with their 400mm and a few other lenses too, if my memory serves me correctlly, was a commonly noted issue. Mini beercan 35-70 is a great little performer. We still use it for fun, ...

  • Hi Shawn Truly is; nowadays I use it as a back-up on longer shoot projects. See it retiring when I jump to an A7Mk III (or an A9 if that floats my boat.) Have a great Christmas. Enjoy all that ...
  • Great new life for great old lens.
  • Created discussions 7D DNA survives!
    There was always something about that era just before Minolta (Oops - Konica-Minolta) proudly revealed what was then, and I still believe is one of the best-handling DSLR cameras ever. It felt ...
  • I have been through the whole process...Shutter replaced FOC by Sony Repair here in New Zealand. Then after three years one more time, but advised there might not be another chance. Discovered ...
  • Yay for KMT?DP Review, and thanks very much Lyle for your 'bones 'n' braces' approach to the FFB issue. Yes, I know all the arguments why one should not bother - too old, too worn, too ... whatever! ...
