Excuse me Stephen,

Aaawww it's so easy to sh--t on somebody when you don't know the details, so
lighten up!

I just wonder if you live in an absolutely perfect world where an error of
judgement isn't ever made?  Or are you like the rest of us, normal and accept
the possible "human error" factor occaisionaly?

Quite frankly this happened because in the mind of the originator of the initial
fax trying to be a responsible corporate person to their customers and to avoid
any possible further damage.  The first decision was based on the findings of a
camera that came in for servicing and it appeared the damage ""MIGHT"" have been
done by a "cam".  Therefore before the results from an immediate extensive
testing was completed, the errant fax made it's way into the world with everyone
of the R8 owners kinda holding their breathe and wildly checking all their
lenses! -- me included!!!!

So a minor misjudgement and sure it caused some anguish, but this seems to be in
your eyes, they are damned if they did & damned if they didn't.

And by the way do you own an R8?  If not, you should buy one they are quite an
incredible camera, in case you hadn't noticed! :)
