It was the AF assembly that had to be replaced...its back now..
Wonder what could have happened...
Mine got another bump in its life recently... well, still works fine - got taken out today for a little walk, came across this little fellow, I think he/she/it won't object about its photo being made public .
Unfortunately I don't have a proper calibrated monitor available to me... (just my laptop with an IGZO screen, poor thing - 1.4kg light and photo editing....)
