    Be warned - they use a pretty decent screw locking compound, so its quiet easy to flog out the screw heads.

    When I started repairing electronic cameras/shutters, the Golden rule was "First, last & ALWAYS test the battery"
    A battery may give a proper voltage reading with a meter but not work consistently in a camera.
    The reason is,there's no load on the battery with a volt meter, when the camera is tripped there is a load on the battery and it could go below the minimum need of the camera.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Digging up another thread of old of mine....

    I now have had my second lens with the same issue. This time its my 110 f4 PS lens. This time , though, I have discovered some useful info. I am pretty sure that its the lens causing the issue and its not to do with batteries. As others have stated, 1/500 is purely a mechanical speed. I have taken the lens off and have been manually firing it and most certainly, the shutter is sluggish. The funny thing is that my 80 has righted itself...... Anyhow, the 110 is going to be pulled down. I'm hoping that its just a bit of gunky grease.
