    That's why i said they might have overlooked it cos human errors are inevitable.

    As explained above. Manufacturing processes must undergo the 6-sigma process to certify that the batch can be distributed.

    Guess i'm OT-ing too much here.

    Six Sigma doesn't specify the checking of every single product or that there can be no failures in any batch.. right?

    Electronics stuffs are hard to predict as they can fail anytime. Even if u don't get a 1 to 1 exchange, they'll service it for u free. Last time when my LCD backlight failed on the day i bought it and brought it down to service, they also serviced it for free as per normal, but no exchange.

    Take so long to service the flash? When i went to service my shutter unit, only took a day.

    Reading this thread has been interesting... i'm sure most ppl, normal consumer, before reaching or abt 10K, 20k shutter count would have sold the cam for a newer or latest one...
