What are the odds? My a55 died just a day after I ordered my a99.

Thanks Gary and zefelder for the suggestions. Tried them both, they didn't work in my case (the shutter seems to be stuck, not just a power problem) but as you said they were worth a try!



Hmm, I hope there isn't a design/longevity weakness with the a55 shutter, especially if that same unit is used in other models, but I am hearing more and more stories of this same thing - camera dies with shutter stuck closed.

I'm beginning to wonder whether I need to get my a57 up to 40,000 clicks now while it's still under warranty...
