Well my A1 is at the camera hospital. I am not impressed how soft this camera is when it is sold as a pro body. I dropped it with my 200-600 lens on in the house onto a wooden floor. The drop was only about two feet but the mount on the camera moves out from the body and the movement goes right into the camera. I am guessing that where it fixes to inside the body has broken.
A number of years ago I dropped a Nikon D4 and 300 f2.8 about 3-4 feet onto concrete, there was a broken bit of concrete a few marks on the D4 body but that was it, Some 200k shots later it was put in as px for a D5 and was still going.
That what pro bodies should be like.

Rant over. 😂

It sounds to me like some people need that added stability that firmware upgrades often promise!

(But I should not be cocky. We can all be unfortunate, or even have a moment of carelessness. Might be me tomorrow)
 
I was only jesting about the firmware ,I'm not in the position of owning a A1 as I can't afford it ,but from what I've read it looks like sony could have handled it better . Think it's affecting a few cameras with the fault of wi fi and the remote which I must admit I would and do use on my A9II . Don't know what other sony users think, but I think eventually we'll have to pay for all updates ,it's up to us whether to do it or not .
