So the disadvantage of getting a refurbished 7D is you don't necessarily get all the goodies with it. While I got all the cables a new strap and such, I didn't get the Display Cover.

Is there any one out there that might have one they don't need?

Check your email.



Addition: I just got a quote from the UK that translates to about $17 shipped. Seems high to me.

You can order them from Sony parts. They run about 6 dollars. Shipping costs about that much so I reccomend ordering a few

I normally access it through the KM website and link over to Sony parts through there. You can't get the part without the part number so you have to email or call them. It helps to give them the KM number for the accessory. There is thread somewhere that had the number posted. I'll try to look for the number if I can find the invoice.

Thanks for the tip Meanstreak. This may turn out to be a lot easier than I expected.

Hey Cope

You know any other 7D owners in the Houston area? Maybe we could post a group order ans save on the shipping.

There are a couple more in the Katy area that frequent DPReview. I'll make a post and see if there is any interest.

Sony Part Number

U-3900-036-U

I have already lost 3 of these things. I suggest you put some heavy clear packing tape at the top and bottom of the protector to keep them on. When you put the camera strap around your shoulder the protector rubs against your waist. I think my belt loop catches it and pops them off. Sony Parts has them in stock for about $6.00 plus some shipping charge.

Someone, I believe in this forum but maybe elsewhere found that by filing down the tab in the center of one of the edges that it locks into palce better. I haven't tried it, in fact I still have the blue protecter on the LCD. One of these days, I'll get to it.

I'll see if I can find the thread describing the fix someone created.
