    Can you give us any good reason for this ... erm .. assumption? If you have found one that all those engineers in the labs of all these camera makers have missed .. guess they will be grateful.

    This wall switch serves a different purpose. Have you noticed that many other countries do not have any switches on their wall plug sockets? Wonder why... In technical terms, there is also a certain difference between any wall plug and the connection between the lens and the body, starting with the voltage.
    I'm not saying you must not switch off your camera (do whatever rocks your boat) .. but your analogy is far off. Next we will see warnings about not touching the contacts to avoid electric shocks?

    oic... thanks for the info...
    btw.. i'm really jus assuming... hence i put "isn't it" at the back of the statement..
    btw... my 40D spoilt due to on n off... (was told tat the internal part snap off).. spent $10++ to replace it (the part only cost like..$10++ or so... but the service charge is like... wow....) heart pain..
