earlier on when they agreed to honour the warranty, the rep from
Adeal suggested (with a caveat that no fault of mine was implied) that a range
of things could lead to corrosion:
humidity, especially in tropical conditions
In recent correspondence the same rep said corrosion was not the issue.
I can understand how internal corrosion may have damaged the casing from the
inside without my knowledge. However, I cannot see how it would destroy the
focusing mechanism (it didn't seize gradually, it jammed tight suddenly due to
a mechanical failure such as would occur as a result of a broken cog or a
displaced spindle) or how it would break the lenses (the same lenses that were
not broken when I sent it for repair).
