one moment, I was happily snapping photos of the lectures and the next moment, my lens wouldn't retract back. no trauma, no assault, no nothing. just like that. it got stuck, like my camera caught priapism without any foreplay.
i brought it to the service center and they came up with the repair price of one third of the cost of the whole camera. devastated, but i have to give in. no camera for x'mas, hope by chinese new year, it'll be ready and durable.
