My Sony a100 has just died. The symptoms are:
A clicking noise when it is first switched on,
All 5 SSS bars flashing in the viewfinder,
A whining noise when the shutter is half pressed to focus
and the back getting hot with use.The diagnosis seems fairly clear a knackered SSS. I only use a camera for hobby/holiday photos so I dont need (or can afford) a top of the range all singing all dancing pixel shagging machine. The question therefore is what to do. Do I:
Get this body repaired (the camera that is)
Get an a55 so that I can continue to use my current lenses
Bite the bullet and get a Canon EOS 60D?
Option 4 (whatever that may be)Any (clean) suggestions from the ARRSE experts would be welcomed.
