Sorry if this has been asked already, and thanks for the any feedback you can give.

Dave
looks like that is some weird encoding issue, not there on my original.

My last short in Tokyo is up http://www.philipbloom.co.uk/Philip_..._in_Tokyo.html

half shot on Ultimate, half on Extreme to see how well they compared. Some shots were without any adaptor...

In case I didn't let you know in Tokyo Phil. I think you are an absolute craftsman. Such great work. Respect.

my ex1 has gone off to Sony in Paris to be fixed.

The LCD just died, it was intermittent for a few hours then packed in, anyone else come across this?

Whilst there it is getting most of the body replaced as the paint has come off, which i am assured is now fixed, also the handle has become loose, the screw doing nothing to tighten it.

Hope it comes back soon! At least I have my original one which also needs to go in for the paint, got a nice new Letus Ultimate Prototype Mark 2 to try out on it this weekend!

This is a disturbing development. Really makes me suspicious of Sony's QC. These cameras seem to be all over the map as far as build quality is concerned. Here's to hoping mine's not a lemon as well. So far so good (fingers crossed).

Was this camera the first one you got, therefore a very early production model?
