Re: Shutter life/failure on the NEX's.....

After 9 months, I had to send in my 5R for a shutter replacement (under warranty) after the electronic "curtain" became stuck. Both the details of the problem and the precise things that were a repaired remain a mystery as SONY never explained either, despite my repeated requests to speak with some technical person; this after some tens of thousands of actuations.

However, I now change lenses only AFTER turning the camera off, unless I'm shooting with manuals. Whether that'll prevent the problem I had is open for debate, but I understand that, according to SONY, you shouldn't change your electronic lenses while the camera is on.
