I've been using canon gear for years and I've had qc niggles for years.

Love using them.  Wish they always worked properly (lightly used 7d grip blew up taking two genuine batteries out with it.

Canon products are pretty damn good, but quality control is not always the greatest.
I've had to send several items back because of stuck red pixels, one body with a bad LCD screen, and one body had a bad lens mount.
That's too many faults for the number of items I buy, in my opinion.

When everything works as advertised, they're great.

I am happy with my 1DX and the rest, but I must say that I am deeply disappointed with the level of service from Canon Australia
1DX, 7D and lots of gear

Really like what I have but it is not perfect.  And, sometimes it seems like they don't really think about consumer opinion.
5d Mkiii; Eos-M; too many lenses; 430 EXii and a whole lot of stuff

I've been using Canon gear for years, my satisfaction level with Canon products is at 89%. It would not be better with Nikon or Sony.

I "love" my trusty 40Ds and the "medium class" lenses I have - well crafted, reliable: Tools!

I do NOT love my 600D for photography but: It makes amazing video and I like to use a 450EUR/$ system which is compatible to 2MPix video with focal lengths from 16 ... 4000 mm with equipment which is accessible for mortals. O.k. - Magic Lantern is on board and I use the time lapse function extensively now.
Most used tools: 2 x EOS 5D i & 2.8 24 + 2.8/40 | 2.8 100 M + 2.0/100 ||| EOS M & 22 + Ef-S 60

Are you using the video zoom?  If so, how does it hold up?  I've never tried it tbh.

I got camera wobble with a 600mm lens (100mm equiv) how does 4000mm cope!?

You can see what I have in my signature.  I'm happy with what I have, but I also have matched my expectations with the quality of my equipment.  I realize my T1i is not a 5DmIII and I don't expect it to perform like one.  I would like more fps, but that's not the camera's fault - it's my wallet's fault.

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
T1i | 60D | 5D | 10-22 | 17-55 | 24-105L | 50 1.4 | 60 Macro | 85 1.8 | 100 2.8L Macro | 70-200 2.8 Mk II L | 70-300 IS USM | 430EX II x 2 | ST-E2 | 270EX | 1.4 Extender III

Place a 500D and a 5D3 at the bottom of a hill and see which one takes the better shot of the view from the top.

A 500D in the hands of somebody who understands and plays to it's strengths is a more powerful tool than a 5D3 in the hands of somebody who just wanted the biggest camera at the school sports day.

I love that you've used the word amateur, because that very word has it's genesis in the french word for love.
An amateur photographer (as am I) is not scared to wear their heart on their sleeve and do it for the love of it?  What better reason can there be?

Build Quality on my 17-55 f2.8 could be a lot better (it feels a bit wobbly, nothing wrong with the pics though), but my 7D and 70-200 f2.8 IS II are fantastic.

I started with Canon and still shooting with Canon, so far so good.

As an owner of RX-1, not so bad at all. Everything is SOLID.

I'm sure Canon, Nikon, Sony etc...have Pros and Cons in their systems.
ML: A7s + FE21 f2.8 -- FE28 f2 -- FE55 f1.8
DSLR: 1Dx + 85L II -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II
