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.
Very true. But I cannot think of a DSLR camera that Canon has released recently that did not have an issue. So it is not just one model, or an out of the blue occurrence, but something that seems to be a serious issue at Canon.
A lot of people have mentioned car companies. Those recalls only happen from time to time. If they had to recall or service every single new launch model people would quickly move away.
I think it is truly appalling and Canon must have a serious look at their testing procedures, cos obviously when there are issues with the 5D III, 1D X and now the 6D - plus some others I cannot remember then something is going very wrong somewhere.
