@M.Chapman Thanks, I appreciate your input, it's both reassuring and worrying!:D

It makes sense....only happens for me when it's been hot and the camera has been in direct sunlight for a little while.

 

I wonder if it would make any difference if I 'loosened' it up prior to taking a shot by giving it a quick 10fps burst?

I think I know the answer to that though....I'm grasping at straws!

 

So it looks like I'll be shooting in cooler temperatures from now on - just googled cost for replacement shutter assembly....sobering!

By the way, is there a trusted way for me to upload a RAW file anywhere, for anyone who wants to take a gander?

DNG and raw are effectively the same thing for all practical purposes, certainly if using Adobe software. Dropbox is good for uploading raw files,

Once again check out Fixation before you do anything. Get the sensor cleaned by them in the first place (about £60), they will check the camera and give you a sensible and trustworthy quote. They are authorised repairers if there is something wrong.

Thanks again, yes I intend to take it to Wex (and Fixation) tomorrow for a clean.

Just watched a YouTube video of someone replacing the shutter assembly themselves!....not for the faint hearted, but I won't be doing anything quite so reckless!

I'll be taking it slow....and cheap!
