Hi one and all,
A mate has the following gear - D90 and the 50-500 . The issue he is having is primarily with this combination, and it is also intermittent in its nature which is why he's more puzzled as well!
When he's using the gear, generally aviation so no chance of resetting and also fast moving subject, looking through the viewfinder the setting goes to f--! After 'taking' the shot, and looking at it through the screen, it is a black image. He shoots at f.9, camera is set to full manual and shooting . He also mentioned that from memory, it also occurs when at a focal length above 300mm...
Camera is out of warranty, but when he called Lidcombe, they mentioned a lag time of 5-7 working days to look at it, let alone fix a problem that may be with the body. The is not even a year old, still under warranty, and when I went back to where we got them (I got same only mount), I was given details of where it could be serviced under warranty over at Mascot (which suits him as he works at the airport).
Has anyone else had this sort of problem, and if so, was it a or body issue, and what were the corrective measures taken to fix it.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
