    Not so good news for me. Upon installation of the firmware 2.0 update, my camera monitor would flash brightly, when snapping a photo. Now, the monitor does not working at all.

    At least there is the two-year warranty–which is good news for me–since this is the second time I’ll be sending in the camera for repair. The first repair involved replacement of peeling-off leather and replacement of one of the neck strap eyelets which fell off of the camera.
