Well, that brings up a whole different issue. It seems my lens is stuck all the way open. When I depress the button I notice that the part that control the aperture (that are almost non visible ) move slightly. When I push the shutter fully I can see the shutter move past the whole lens. This doesn't change depending on the light situation.
Is this fixable, or should I look for another trip. This is actually the second one this week that looks like it's stuck on one aperture.
