    I just wanted to post an "atta boy" to the guys at Tamron/Bronica. I called them for a replacement back-to-body mating plate for one of my SQ-Ai backs and some metal foil darkslide seals. Despite a cellphone connection that dropped several times, they were wonderful to deal with and very helpful.

    A lot of camera companies won't sell parts to J.Q. Public, so it was refreshing to be able to call - without knowing any of the part numbers - and have someone take the time to walk look the books, take the order, and get it shipped the same day.

    Bravo!

    AFAIK they are legally obligated to sell parts to anyone for about eight years after the product is discontinued.
