Recall on Vello BG-S3 Battery Grip

Bildschirmfoto 2016-04-15 um 08.56.54

SAR reader Terence got this mail from Vello:

According to our records, you purchased a Vello BG-S3 Battery Grip for Sony Alpha A7 II, A7S II & A7R II cameras. During the course of routine quality tests by Vello they have become aware of a problem with an internal chip that has the potential to affect your camera’s operation.
Vello is recalling these battery grips – that were purchased on or prior to February 10,2016 – and replacing them with new ones, which include Sony chips that correct the problem.

Michael Christensen sent this images of an imaginary Minolta FE camera. He morphed the Minolta SR style (here on eBay) with the current Sony A7 design. Would be nice ot have a more “classic” looking FF E-mount camera don’t you agree?
