@KK

Oh that one...:-)

No serious, why should it be a bad thing to leave this black thing on while switching power?

Cheers Wolfgang

The manual advises against switching the camera on with the lens cap on. It does not actually harm the camera ...but it does cause some very strange light readings and I think seems to effect the focusing too ... in my experience. :O

Cheers, KK

I agree with KK, have you heard, like put the camera real close to your ear and make it focus something as near as, e.g. the cap, or something real far, and the poor thing makes that whining noise, the motor focusing, i almost feel as if it's saying, 'please please dont' make me do this! '

Ok, now that makes sense... I just wondered why....

Thanks for this. I didn't notice this in the manual (RTFM).

Cheers Wolfgang
