Hello everyone and thanks for having me. I look forward to becoming educated here on this forum and my first question will be this: Does anyone know where I could find the serial numbers for the 717's that were recalled. Just bought a new one on EBAY this afternoon and tonight became aware of the recall. I found several sites but the links were no longer active. I thank you in advance for your help.

The recall was on a few of the early ones. They had a focus problem. I bought a used F717 on ebay mfg date July 2003 and it works great. I think the few that were recalled were made in 2002 and were recalled for debugging Your camera should be ok and I wouldn't worry about it.

Here is a list of the S/N's that were recalled: http://www.dcviews.com/press/Sony_F717_focus.htm

Mine was made in October 2003 and has no focus trouble at all.

Much thanks to the both of you. It should be arriving on Sat. so I am anxious to have a look. It was too late to check with the seller as he had already shipped it on Weds.
