    view finder rose color tint

    I have not used my Sigma SA 9 in a couple of months, when I perped it for a shoot tomorrow I found the view finder has a rose color tint, the mirror and focusing screen seem to clear, it is not in the lens, took the lens off, it is the viewfinder. I then check my SA 7 has the same tint, I have not used the SA 7 in over a year, both use the same viewfinder and are I assume the same age. Any ideas.

    How romantic.

    thanks, that explains it, too bad, other than the tint I like the SA 9 and 7, I had thought about leaving in the sunlight may not help but I will give it a go.

    I feel for you. Sadly, this is what can happen when a manufacturer cuts corners.
