I have been meaning to post some moon shots taken hand held with the PL
100-400 - stabilisation is amazing.
Before getting someone to take the imac apart I would invest in a an
external disk enclosure with firewire 800 (I am guessing at the imac
model you have) and preferably an ssd or hybrid drive, install osx on
the external disk and boot from it. and use it like that for a while,
from this you will know if the disk is the issue or if its something
else like memory or motherboard. If you need help on how to do that
contact me off list. If it then works ok then you can get a repair place
to swap the disk with the external ssd if its slowevia FW800.
One thing that apple did many years ago that was extremely clever is to
make it child's play to switch hardware in case you need to get a new mac

Well, interesting times !! Â Having had 2 E5 mkll's lock up after i upgraded firmware I struggled to sort out menu's.

I am really impressed by the combined image stabilisation of body plus lens
with the 12-100. It really makes hand holding at silly speeds possible, and
auto focus helps.
Just loaded some shots on to my 27" Imac to check, screen froze, booted out, restarted,
AND NOTHING. After talking issue through with Apple Tech re installed operating sytem and
downloaded backup. Worked for an hour then same issues. The machine is 6yrs old, rarely turned
off, and I fear my hard drive is toast.Looked at procedure for replacing hard drive and decide
that this is one for the experts. My machine has been totally reliable from new.I hope it is
not beyond economic repair, I could NOT face going back to a Windoze operating
system.Â Regards John Duggan, Wales, UK
