    Can you say more about design faults and their consequences?
    Wow, I haven't heard that before.
    Yep, and you should have seen the thrashing we got from the idiot fanboys
    when we tried to discuss the AF problems in the DPReview forum. :- )

  2. So Canon *has* released a fix, and it's of the send-in type?
    Well, a software bug in a car (yep, we have had them, already)
    would fall under hardware in your definition.
    I'd not agree to that definition.

    It seems not unreasonable to me that if a company has had problems
    in the past with a particular aspect of their products, the same
    problem will crop up in later products.
    Especially if they have a history (reputation) of problem with
    that aspect.

    For example, I'd not give a swindler money on the basis that
    he's certainly no longer a swindler after he was in prison
    for that for the second time.

    And you shouldn't have tried to claim that 100 euros is insignificant.

    Yes it is. You may not like the fact that adding a swivel screen to
    the 7D is a stupid idea, but it is, nonetheless, a stupid idea.

  5. Point me to the website where Canon says they have a fix for
    that problem and you have to send your camera in. Thank you.

    Otherwise the jury is still out on the "can/cannot be fixed by
    a firmware update" claims.
    And here I thought that there was something between these two
    extremes, like a /complicated/ customer fix or a 'give it for 15
    minutes to your dealer, he's trained and will do the fix' fix ...

    I don't admit they have a real-life problem there, thus my
    expectations will be different from yours.
    You probably will life more content and less disappointed if you
    adopt a "it's done when it's done", "it's fixed when third parties
    report that it's fixed" and "I'll believe it when I see it ("it"
    usually being some promise of improvement or similar)" policy.

  6. It's the appearance, then, that bothers you?
    Obviously.
