Summary: I owned the L1 for just 5 weeks when it started malfunctioning. When the shutter speed dial was set to "A", it would start rapidly fluxuating between the correct shutter speed as calculated from the Automatic "A" mode and 1/4000th of a second. This is most likely because the "A" is next to "4000" and there is a bad contact or insulator between the two contacts. This renders the camera as inoperable except for Shutter priority mode.
