Sony sued over alleged Sony A7 III defect that makes camera ‘unusable’

Sony is being sued in the US over an alleged Sony A7 III defect that it’s claimed renders the mirrorless camera “unusable” and forces owners to pay for pricey repairs.

According to a post on Law Street, picked up by DIY photography, the New York-based plaintiff has filed a class-action lawsuit against Sony claiming that the A7 III has “mechanical problems with the shutter” that have rendered the cameras “unusable (to purchasers) provided they do not pay over $500 for repair to an authorized service center.”

Of course, shutter problems aren’t uncommon, and while camera companies do give estimates of how many shutter presses a camera can manage over its lifetime – in the Sony A7 III’s case, that number is 200,000 – this isn’t a guaranteed figure.
