Coops, i would agree that £370 is steep, but unfortunately most specialist repair centres are.

I have a Tag Heuer Carrera watch that i bought when i had a decent job and more money than sense.
To replace the locking link in the strap is almost £200!

Since it is a specialist, finely crafted technical pieced of kit they can always charge a premium because we cant do it ourselves.

I agree, but the point Im making is Canon werent always doing this. This is new. Im in and out of Elstree a lot. And this is recent. I had a word with the technicians today and they conceded the change isnt being well received. But like you say its a price you pay. Forgive me Im still pissed about 130 quid for 2 screws to be tightened ;) .

Love these shots. I was in London today with my camera and not once did I have the guts to pull out my camera. :( Really struggling with this. I think being robbed in Madrid is still with me. I wouldn't mind but I wasn't attacked. Can we get together for a group meeting one weekend before crimbo? I could do with the confidence building exercise.

I'm rebuilding an engine at present and just spent £120 on three small gaskets and five nuts and studs just because I can only get them from Nissan I don't mind when I walk out with something in my hand but what I've just bought I stuffed in my jacket pocket then forgot it was there by the time I got home.

Yes, and CPS today admitted that they normally wouldn't charge for that. Even the work sheet says tightened two screws.

Most of these were taken with 5DII and 85 f/1.2 with Ian supporting the Apollo softbox with a lightly CTO gelled 580 flash

Some nice shots

My favourite case has broken

The wheel trashed on the way home from Chelsea on Saturday.

Thankfully a call to ThinkTank is resolving the issue, they are sending me a free replacement \o/


Ouch, I don't think the wheels are up to racetracks and gravel paths, I am glad they are sending you a replacement
