Disaster, double disaster as the weather conditions this morning were stunning.

Apparently its a known issue and there was a recall... which i missed as I fell out of love with taking photos some years ago but started to pic the camera up again a few weeks ago!

Does anyone have any idea of potential cost to get this repaired?

Many thanks Ian

Bad luck on that one, but you are right about the recall. I got my free fix from A J Johnstone in Glasgow , and I'd suggest dropping them an email or phoning them to see what they can do for yours.

Try Lehmanns in Stoke on Trent, which is closer for you.

Speak to Canon - they may well do it free due to it being a known issue
