Yup, jolly ole ZOOM rocker. Got a mind of its own. This is its 4th year of Active Duty! I got cover, so I should worry.

UPDATE: Went in a week ago. Switch-block on zoom rocker being replaced. Parts coming into UK. I should have it back 10 days time.

Thought you'd be fascinated. Yeah I know, nothing like up to the minute News Reporting!

Strange that they have to wait on Japan. I would have thought this was a stocked part.

I didn't say Japan? I was told that Canon-UK do NOT stock these parts and these would be coming from either Germany or Portugal?

When I did have my CCD block replaced they did in fact have that part in stock. So I was lucky. That's me - Mr Lucky!

Anyway, the darn thing WONT die . . next thing will be a stake to its 1/4", non-16:9, non-XLR, teeny-LCD heart!! Still love it ...I truly do.

Got Canon back yesterday. New Zoom Rocker AND ribbon. OOooh what a nasty little ribbon too?

Anyways, 2 weeks and 'cos of me cover, no charge - OK, the COVER cost me, but I estimate it has to be about 30% of the parts and labour for it.
