I had to pay for the shoe on my sigma flash although it was only 30 bucks and I swapped it myself.
Glad you have had a good experience with Sony repair. Really glad. I might just take my wife out tonight to celebrate your good fortune. That is how happy I am for you.
Unfortunately you keep speaking out of ignorance of my situation and this is not the first time. Either you don't pay attention or you have an agenda since I have written about it so many times my fingers are tired of it.
I went to a lot of trouble to get my A700 to Sony so they could fix it. "Fix" lasted a month or two. And this was not my first experience with Sony repair. KM had my 7D four times to fix and didn't so then I sent it twice to Sony after the takeover and they didn't do it either. Kudos to Sony though that the last time they refunded my 7D purchase price.
Sony doesn't have QC problems any worse than any other maker.
Sorry, but that is just your opinion. My opinion is the opposite -- at least with regards to past products. I can't say much about the most recent ones. If the most recent rumor about the rumor about the rumor about the rumor about the rumor -- I don't know how many levels of rumors we are at now
-- is true Sony is taking QC more seriously. That is great news if the rumor is true. I get the distinct feeling this thread really, really
