A700 failure rate..

Unread postby bfitzgerald » Wed Sep 30, 2009 8:09 pm

Prompted by a few threads I have read, control dial issues etc.

Wonder how many users on this forum have had a problem. (any kind of problem not just control dial)
If so please list the problem, and conclusion (aka repaired out of warranty/cost etc)

Here is what Sony did to fix mine (unfortunately since all of Don's posts have been removed from the forum it is missing his contributions to the thread):

I received my a700 in May 2008 and have had no issues at all. I've shot somewhere around 20,000 exposures.

I voted yes. but my camera was waterlogged and fixed under warranty. it was a foreign warranty. the screen was even foggy when I bought it in I told them I had (banned term) in it and they still repaired it FOC. I have almost 20k shot on mine since the repair and no problems. Henry did you ever figure out why they changed your focus screens when yours was in ?
