Re: Advice sought: My Sony a700 died :(

You are correct. I just remembered my 70-200 SSM would not work but the beer can did.  So it may well be the camera's screw drive motor. Sigh.

That doesn’t sound like a fuse. Fuse failure causes the reverse problem; screw-drive lenses work and SSM lenses don’t. Sounds like there’s either a problem with your 16-80 or the body’s screw-drive motor.
