    Hi everyone

    I'm wondering if anyone knows whether the EVF component for an A7 can be bought as a sole product? In fact, I am after an EVF and the LCD screen on the back.

    Reason being is that the EVF has been smashed completely and the screen has been scratched.I guess that happens when you fall down a mountain!

    Whilst it is covered by insurance, I can't get it back to Australia until August. The camera is still working and is completely functional, except for the EVF.

    Thoughts/ideas on a course of action are most welcome.

    Oh, and I am in Mongolia currently, hence why I am trying to find a workaround until August.

    I think it would be a pretty extreme undertaking unless you have a lot of previous knowledge to try to repair the evf yourself. If perhaps your where planning on taking it somewhere to get repaired and just want the parts I am unsure maybe just try contacting sony ?

    Thanks mate, I agree. I was going to see how expensive the parts are and then get someone here to do it if feasible.
