i have had two go on my ex1. with the weight of the 35mm adaptor it really puts a strain on it

One of mine broke. So I repaired it with Crazy Glue, then reinforced it with epoxy. I also reinforced the one on the other camera with epoxy. Here's photos posted earlier:

i did that but it means Sony won't repair your camera when it goes in for repair unless they replace everything you have done. Sucks doesn't it?

I just sent mine in for software update and getting the battery "drain" problem fixed.

It came back with the work done and no comment about the mic clamp. Could be that when the clamp is closed the repair isn't visible.
