I'm not quite sure how to describe this, but suddenly the shutter on my 40D sounds different. It seems like a longer sounds, and is sort of mushy or soft sounding. I don't see any difference in my photos and haven't gotten any error messages (yet). But it has over 40,000 clicks on it so I suppose I might be coming up on a failure.
Has anyone else noticed anything like this? Did it happen before a failure?
This and a few hot pixels (only noticeable in really long shots, like 30 seconds to a minute or more) make me think it's a good time to tell the wife I need a 7D.
Silver lining and all that...
Anyway, does this change in shutter sound mean something bad?
