RX1 Manual focus SHUTDOWN

When I bought the Sony RX1, I said to myself "this camera will take me to the grave". It had everything I needed. Large full-frame sensor, great lens, small size and a really great manual focus system. Little did I know that this camera would become practically useless in a matter of months. I paid a small fortune for this camera with a hefty extra for a viewfinder. I see that I'm not the only one who was gyped by Sony. It seems that many owners have had the same problem as me with this camera. The manual focus just stopped working. The auto-focus still works but the manual focus - NEVERMORE. It seems that the camera was designed with a very weak manual focus system. I feel that Sony should do something about this. I am outraged. A $3,000 dollar camera that only works for a few months. I saw online that a repair will cost over $1,000. Pay that much to repair the  manual focus system that will probably just break again in a few months. Sony really made suckers of us with their hype that made us believe we were paying pro prices to have a pro camera. I guess that's why the pros still use Nikon and Canon. It makes one think twice about investing in an A7 system.
