That was a quote from a few months ago. The only issue that plagues me is the fact that on around 10% of my photos at faster shutter speeds, the shutter doesn't close all the way on the bottom, or it bounces back up. When it starts doing this I shoot in 3:2 for a while and then when I go back to 4:3 it's often gone for a while. It annoys me that I have to crop these images if I really want 4:3. a) Advantages of sending it in: they'll fix it. But... b) Disadvantages: I'm extremely happy that my camera is in perfect mint cosmetic condition (I just sold a 2004 camera for top-dollar because it was in pristine condition...kind of a hobby, kind of a disease!). I don't want any scuffs or scratches on the camera at all. I never set it on a hard surface. You ever buy a cell phone and they set it on the hard table and slide it around? It will scratch the back plastic! In Japan, they always have a soft pad or a towel down when they do something like that. Here in the States the mindset isn't the same. So, yes, I want my PM2 fixed before its warranty is up (May). But if I do that, and they scratch it, I'm going to be extremely unhappy (funny though, if I buy something used and already scratched it doesn't bother me the least bit).
