This is a follow-up to a post from a couple of weeks ago after I took my Digital Rebel — thankfully, still under warranty — in for "error 99" repairs. I had shot more than 5,000 pictures with the camera since I bought it last year — using the kit lens, a Tamron 80-210 and a Sigma 170-500 — without any problems. I have seen posts here in which it has been reported that Canon was blaming these third-party lenses for the "error 99" messages. Anyway, Canon replaced the main logic board and the shutter assembly, so I think it's obvious the problem — whatever it was — had nothing to do with the lenses. I'm just grateful to get my gear back. I only bought my first camera — a Canon A40 — a couple of years ago for a travel writing assignment, got bit by the bug and bought the Rebel, which I am now lost without. And, yes, that D20 with its 5fps rating has me drooling.

Did you have to pay for the repairs?

No, the camera was still under warranty.

And a new shutter assembly means you get the clock on that reset. So that is nice.

Sorry you had the trouble, though.

I don't know what resetting the clock means. Can you explain?
