So the story goes...It's already deep in the bin and not worth the bother despite the reputed "ease" of teardown and "repair" when they're going in working condition for a song. It's a baked-in defect I won't bother to remedy with a cabinet full of working Nikon gear. Junk.
Fantastic! The more folks like you that consider this excellent system to be "junk" the cheaper and easier it will be for the intelligent elitists like me to get fantastic cameras and lenses! I love it! (grin)
