Hi all.

I own a canon xm2 which for the past 4 years has been excellent and fun to work with. However, over recent months, the zoom had started to play up something chronic.

It in sometimes completely unresponsive whilst using the main rocker (complete loss of control - it starts zooming by itself at any speed it chooses) and so I have had to revert to the tiny zoom on the handle. This however is now statring to suffer exactly the same issues so my suspicions lead to the assumption that they are connected! I no longer have a warrenty and dont really see the point in giving canon more money to fix the thing so my questions are -

has anyone else experienced this?

if so did you manage to fix it and how

what things can I try aside from complete destroying by pulling it to bits?

Thanks Ben
