I sent the camera back. Even though I regret having to do so, but the charger was the last straw. Without that though I actually might have kept the camera, despite its worn exterior and the high shutter count because after getting the colours right, it was really great. And even now it was difficult to return it because focus was spot on with both the 300/4 and the 400/5.6. Not a trace of front or back focussing and so no AFMA needed. The first 1D4 front focussed with both my lenses and I'm not good in correcting that myself.
But a camera without a charger is too big a problem. I would have to sell my 1D3 without one, which I won't do, but if I do then I myself would be without a charger and would have to buy one which - according to going rates on eBay - would set me back some 250 Euro for a used one. New they are 365 Euro. I figured that for the same total sum I can get a better copy.
I don't expect every shot to be in focus. Especially with birds on the move you will miss focus some times. I always assume it's my own doing, not the camera's. Or the birds' fault, as they move too fast and erratic!
