What i don't like about this is that i bought a 1DX just under 3 weeks ago and have been proud of it's 400 000 shutter life and now they tell me that most probably your drive mechanism will fail long before that, hahaha.
They're not really saying that, they are saying send it in and let them fix the issue for free.
Hats off to them for telling us and being proactive. How many companies would have kept quiet. I am impressed - annoyed, but still impressed.
