Just after some sympathy really..... lol. My 5D is at KM being repaired. I have worn out the shutter release in the 3 months that I have had the camera (probably has something to do with metaking over 10,000 photos in that time).

One good thing though is that it has given me the time to start putting a web site together.

Have a look at http://www.photographysmith.co.ukif you are interested to see what I have knocked up.

Happy shooting,

Mark.

10K shots in 3 months is impressive! I recently read one of your messages about problems with the flash. How was that resolved? Also, do you have any images posted that you shot with the kit lens?

Hi B1ue,

It was quite easy to get to the 10,000 as I take a lot of sports shots (and am still learning how to get the best angles and to sort my timing out).

With the flash I took the camera back to the shop and they swapped it straight over. No other problems with it since. So far my impression of KM is really good. I work only 5 miles away from the service centre which is in Milton Keynes so just dropped it into them on Wed and should get it back in the next week.

I will include some pics that are 100% crops using the kit lens and a little unsharp mask applied. Are you considering getting one of these?

The first pic is:
