Is there any reason Dsll should keep this???? You can see photos and a write up over on my blog, so click on my name for the url if you are interested in seeing what I did.

I guess I have to return it now. Enhancement for thermal control. Has this happened to anyone else. I have the same problem fifth time now….
So, my advice to everyone is this:
