Thank you pointblank and all others, I found the shop today, unfortunately it was closed as they have independence day here today, BTW congratulation to all our french members, tomorrow the first thing I am doing is the shop. Two options come to mind urgent fix which is the way preferred, otherwise desperate situation need desperate measures, as I have all my Carl Zeis lenses of which two I bought for this trip (never been used at least since a month from the last delivey), I might consider investing in another camera if it comes down to it, I am missing a lot of shots and beautiful scenaries including today's event.
Anyway, it might be an a850 or a900 to maintain the FF. My son is recommending to get the Nex5 with the connection for the Alpha lenses, what do you think. This will all be applicable and becomes part of the solution if they need to keep the a900 for more than 48 hours, after which I have to depart to Spain for 10 days.
I apologize for the story, but I am really frustrated with the whole thing and tomorrow is my final attempt to salvage the situation. Not to mention I also lost my brand new Blackberry on the second day of arrival. Venting some air. Thanks all for reading and responding. Hopefully I will be able to get the camera fixed and post some pictures when I return.
