I'm cancelling my order!!!

Or I would if I could, for my Sony α700 . Unfortunately, I've owned it for several years, and it's too late to cancel, I supposed, 20000 shots into the dang thing.

But I just turned it on and smashed my ear up to one side, and no sound. But I touch the shutter release to activate the IBIS or focus or who knows what, and I can hear a buzzing sound. What the??? The fact that I never heard it before is irrelevant. To the dumpster!!

I just checked my flatscreen TV. Wholly cow. Gone.

Radio. Gone. Gone! My Expensive LED bulbs. Buzz... gone! My awesome analog amp from Marantz. Gone. MY PC.

And the worst one of all?!?!? My Toyota Highlander. Wow, I never new how freakin' loud that thing is just sitting there at a stop light. And it's not my imagination, either -- a pedestrian turned to look over! THAT's how bad that was. Gone!

Now it's really quiet at home, except for the ringing in my ears. Why did the sirens have to be so loud???
