Wow, good news indeed.
However, I'm pretty much confused here; this is a KM website and we are supposed to contact KM ? Isn't anything related to KM photographic equipment now under Sony responsibility (and Sony is actually doing any repairs)?

Anyway, glad to see that KM has for the first time confirmed the problem officially I'm more than confident that this was "forced" by many reports from 7D / 5D users on various sites and forums around the net (including our small community of course).

I have updated our dedicated page about this problem and will try to keep it updated.

It's the first time that I have seen a public admission of the fault.    I hope that Sony co-erce KM into offering this free repair worldwide it will do a lot to enhance Sony's reputation and build real brand loyalty for whatever comes next.

GO ON SONY / KM - YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE.

I've been away!

A fellow member of an Australian forum had his 5D exchanged for an A100 last week. AS failure, camera still under warranty. Looks promising for those with issues, especially if Sony is covering out-of-warranty repairs. Hope they follow suite world-wide.

Sounds excellent and finally a reasonable response.

Hopefully this is offered to the rest of the world (and i cant see why not)

Nice!!!!!

Thanks! I've saved it as PDF (you never know... :-P)

I will send my 5D for repair with a cheap 256MB flash card with my collection of black frames .MRW and .THM, I will quote the "Error 58" of the repair manual, and attach this document too.

Oh, and a copy of the warranty card of course.

I have good hopes that I will get my 5D repaired now :-)
