    Shooting with my Q7and 06 lens this morning and then, this afternoon (45 mins ago), my 06 lens won't focus and
    appears a tad wonky Fiddle around with it and come to the realisation that is hooped
    I Take off the filter and take out the screws (for one of the guys at work), toss it in the bin and getting ready to order
    another 06 lens from Ricoh Imaging Canada

    So, I reckon, WTH, I'll try my old/first 06 lens from this sad story -CLICK HERE -and, well, blow me down, if it
    doesn't work …… which, for the time being, has made me :-D.

    Oh dear, you aren't having much luck with the Q's.

    Hope you can get it to go, they're a fun little thing.

    Hopefully this is a better result than last time - at least, if I read you right, the Q7 body is OK.

    Perhaps at this rate you should order two O6 lenses, and keep one as "hot spare" :-/

    That's the thing, Steve, I love 'em and the results …. maybe, it's just
    tough love :rolleyes:. 24 hours later, it's so far so good :)

    Hi Alex,

    The body and the old (06) lens are, so far, ticketyboo :D and I am tempted
    to order a back up ;)

    Jack, you are not supposed to put it in your back pocket and then sit down on a hard bench! Ouch!

    Keep us posted. Any photos of the sick lens?

    Hi M_B,

    That's what a mate of mine did with his compact digital a few
    years back ;) and I never had a camera small enough for trouser
    pockets :D

    The new "old" 06 lens is surviving, so far ………… for the most part ;)
