Hi all,

first of all I want to thank the friends who established this forum ! Very nice to have something like this !

I am just an amateur who has been using a Canon EOS 50 for some time and about 3 months ago moved over to the Nikon team. I bought one F5 and one F100 when visiting Hong Kong. I work in the mainland of China for a 2 year assignment.

I have been very happy with my Nikon gear. They both are so much more solid than the cheap Canon I was using. I have already travelled quite a lot with these Nikons in China, just recently went to Tibet, Lhasa, and got wonderful pictures !

But now I have the first fault in my F5. It has lost two "lines" from the 8 segment display which displays the frame counter in the viewfinder.
So it does not anymore show the whole digit there. This is a minor fault but I need to get it repared anyway.

The service Nikon has in Beijing I will not trust too much on. I think that I take the camera to Hong Kong when going there next time. Does someone know, if the display unit is physically in the viewfinder ? Is it then enough to ship only the viewfinder to a Nikon service ? That could be easier and more safe for me.

Regards

Markku Jarventausta
