I am losing respect for companies pushing products out before testing properly. Why can't they do like Honda? I know its been going on for a while with companies, prob since the beginning of time but social media like these forums catch fire over this type of stuff. I was ever so lucky to be a first 1dm3 owner that had shutter and focus issues. I didn't have major problems but still had the recall. Seriously if Canon weren't so big and the fact that other companies also fail like this they would be out of business. I felt shame for the same thing happening in a company i used to work for where i found an issue and they said well if the customer complains we will address it then. Seriously, made me sick to my stomach that I had to send product out that i wouldn't buy knowing the issues. All for the almighty dollar.I used to work in Quality Assurance for a really high end manufacturing company about 7 years ago. All we did was talk about how amazing toyota was at manufacturing and how they were the company to try to emulate.
Fast forward a few years, and they are plagued by recalls. It's not always as it seems in manufacturing and a certain amount of product failure is always expected. If you spend all your time making a perfect product with zero problems ever, then you will go out of business because of product manufacturing costs. There has to be a balance, It's just the harsh reality of it all.
