I said, the other day:
One of my 1Dmk2 bodies is in Jamesburg for repair. The pin that locks the lens onto the mount became stuck in the "release" position.
If anyone is curious, the cost is $290 to fix it.
I also asked them to give me a shutter count while they had it on the bench. I asked them if they can tell if the shutter has been previously replaced, and she said no they cannot tell just be looking at it. She said they do "rest the counter" when a shutter is replaced though.
I am so freaking ticked off at Canon service right now. Got the 1D2 back. On the invoice, they state that they fixed the locking pin, and they also state, "adjusted focus and exposure".
Uh oh.....I SHOULD have told them don't even freakin TOUCH the AF. This camera worked well as for AF previously. As does my other 1D2 and my 1DS. So this morning I thought I would test out the 'repaired' camera. Awful. Just plain awful. It is so far off on focusing the 70-200 and the 300 ( both shot wide open at 2.8 ) that it is not even usable. Put the other bodies on these two lenses....and they are still perfect.
So....lesson learned....if you have a body that is focusing correctly, and you send it in for other repairs tell them don't f-ing touch the focus.
Not that they will pay any attention to it....it said right on the work order to give me a shutter count, and they didn't bother to do that.
I dunno....not sure here, I'm thinking maybe I should try my luck with the service center in California instead of NJ. I'm gonna call Jamesburg in the morning and see what they say.
Thanks for letting me vent ! I still ain't happy....but I feel better ! LOL. I think.....
