Hello everyone

 

I am about to purchase a 2600MC, and I have read quite a few posts on the forums that some members have had issues where they need to repeatedly clean the sensor/AR window?

 

Can I have some feedback from actual owners of the camera on YOUR user experience with this, before I go ahead and pull the trigger?

 

Thanks

Would be great to hear any input from owners of the 2600MC Pro?

I've not seen any leaks.  Been using it for a few months.  Great camera.

Same story as Bob, had it about a month and since I noticed these threads, I started check my sensor every couple of days, no sign of oil...fingers crossed!
