Can't give you any hint other than "longer than they tell you" :rolleyes:

It focuses in 1 shot?? If so, it sounds possibly more of a body problem than the lens?

How are things? haven't heard from you for a while.

There is a BBQ being organized to meet Peter (aKiwi) at Scott's place next week.

Middle of the wedding season so I imagine some gear in for urgent repair. Unless you're a CPS member you get the standard 20 working days or whatever it is. Probably toward the end of that scale at the moment.

guess it will just have to wait then, at least it still focuses single shot

more humour:

'her indoors to insurance person on phone - "we're wanting insurance to cover some building work that is happening shortly"

insurance person - "what type of building work?"

'her indoors - "we're having an en-suite installed and some re-piling done"

insurance person - "so nothing structural then..."

:rolleyes:

If its not a warranty job they'll probably turn it around faster as they want your money :) lol We had that with a flash unit a couple of months ago before we were members of CPS.. turn around was about 7 days :)

I hadnt heard that shag rock was so stuffed. Weird question - do you work for MWH or in Show Place - The photo of the damage to your work, and the description of being 22km away from epicenter makes me think so.

I used to work for HP which was in show place...

HELP!!
Hi guys.
I need someones help I think.
My camera seems to have died today. Absolute great when you are on holiday for 2 weeks in New Zealand, and this weekend we have our family reunion where I have to photograph!!
Does anybody have a Canon body I could borrow till the end of my stay next week.

One option Is If someone in Akl had one I could borrow, my brother is in Auckland and is flying down to meet me on Friday. He lives in Mt Eden, and works near Birkenhead. I could give it back next Friday at the BBQ.
Please contact me.
Unfortunately I don't have constant internet.
Tonight (Wednesday) you can call me on 022 0ne 007808
or tomorrow send me a text on 0049 0ne 634219505

It would be greatly appreciated!
