Thanks for the reply, Mike. :)
Yes - they will warranty the camera for 6 months, but - as far as I am
concerned they haven't fixed the camera to begin with. It's also a
$150 repair, which is kind of dear when you consider that's nearly 1/2
the cost of an FA from keh.
I'm going to take it back into the shop here today, and the owner has
said that he's willing to allow me to show him the malfunction - he
was very nice with me on the phone BTW, and very helpful. I just
wanted to verify that he was being honest with me about the camera.
I was wondering if anyone here knows if most reputable repair shops
will refund the cost of repairs if the camera does not operate
reliably for any significant period of time?
