I bought this as a used buy from the UK company, Jessops, about 6 weeks\nago. I am new to photography, and I put some problems down to user\nerror, but now I am not so sure... The camera would often return out of\nfocus images, seemingly at random, even of the same shot, tripod\nmounted, in good light, taken sequentially as fast as the camera would\nsave and reload. It would also give worse performance in lowish light\ncondition than an ancient Sony Mavica I have, and would pop up the flash\non a bright sunny morning... Again, I felt something was wrong, but\nstill thought I may be doing something amiss, although I frequently\nchecked the set all options to default was re applied when I "fiddled".\nThe lens drive motor was always very noisy, and when the lens was out\ncould easily be pushed and pulled in and out about 2 mm with the\nlightest touch. This seemed to be the cause of the somewhat random\nfocusing! Today, the damn thing has died with a "Lens Error" message,\nand it sounds and feels as if whatever moves the lens, probably some\nsort of motorised rack and pinion gear, has broken. I have to say I had\nreservations about the camera when I went to see it, as it just FELT\nflimsy, plasticky and very light. It's spec and magazine reviews won me\nover, but now I feel the thing is a lemon. Am I wrong? How much will\nfixing this cost, I need to check what warranty came with it, but if the\nworst comes to the worst?\n\nFinally, a general digital camera question. Is the technology such, in\nthe price range this 5700 is in, that lowish light level photos, such as\nin woodland on a normal brightness day, will never be as good as a film\ncamera? I bought it to take wildlife photos in woodland adjoining our\nhouse, and it has never returned an even remotely decent picture from\nthere. Maybe it was *uggered from the start?\n\nThanks!
