So I experienced more issues at yesterdays wedding

Thats 2 out of 4 weddings this year where the same A99ii with Zeiss 24mm F2 has thrown up either a System Error or just an Unresponsive blackscreen

It happened 3 times yesterday, fixed by removing batteries. This hasnt happened on the other body with the 70-200

Curious how many of you out there have had this problem. Its very intermittant so hesitant to send it to Sony for repair since they probably wont be able to replicate the fault.

It always happens immediately after taking a photo, usually about 300-400 photos into the day

I do have 2 weeks before the next wedding and am now in the SPS scheme so I can get it back really quickly just wondering if its worth the time since it will probably come back with no fault found, or factory reset so I have to reprogram all my custom buttons !

Never seen that. Have seen a blown pixel on the sensor that appeared to resolve with system reset. Have had an unresponsive camera when a Sigma lens refuse to function, fixed by reattaching. Unclear if collapse of lens-body communication will produce a black screen, but it might.

PS how's your Sigma Art 35 working? Finding mine and its big brothers (50 1.4 and 24-105) tough to take off the camera . . .

The sigma hasnt come out of the bag! I have had the Zeiss 24mm F2 permanently attached, the poor sigma isnt getting a look in (and its one of my fave lenses!)
