I am waiting for my new MkIII to arrive and have been browsing the forum to pick up info. Is it my imagination or are a disproportionate number of MkIII's failing. I've read with horror the threads on water damage. This camera is supposedly water resistant. I've even read a post by someone who claimed to have washed his MkII under a gently running tap! I have had A1, T90, F1n, D30, 20D and 7D. All these cameras have travelled the world and spent a lot of time in the far east. Not one has shown any signs of internal water damage. Furthermore I must confess to being a sweaty person. I have had sweat trickling down my arm and dripping onto the camera held in my hand ( and into the viwfinder of a Bronica). I blacklisted Sony when they refused to accept that damage to a screen caused by a sweaty nose was their responsibility. I chuckled to myself and thought that this problem would never happen to me, I used Canon cameras! Will someone please tell me that this is all in my imagination and that I haven't made a terrible mistake.
