EX3 routine maintenance
I have an EX3. Two years old, no problems. Do people send these to Sony periodically for "a check up"?

My personal feeling is that "If it ain't broke... keep it working"
You may want to update to the latest firmware; and servicing might be a good idea if the camera or lens has gotten really dusty. But with a minimum of moving parts, if the camera works great keep going with it. It's not as though you need to have the belts tightened...

Might want to do a Auto FB adjust once in a while if you're using the stock lens.

Re: EX3 routine maintenance
Never serviced any of my EX's other than a good clean with a paint brush to get dust and dirt out of all the little corners etc. Also as suggested above I always used to check the FB every month or so.
