My 24-70 2.8 L is muted with Hockey tape. You know, that matte stuff you put on you stick for better grip and shot.
On capital equipment, resale value is important. You wouldn't buy a $300,000 home believing it would only be worth have that in a year, would you?

I can feel the collective intelligence of the room dropping by the minute
Actually, it was pretty intelligent....for their bottom line. Imagine the cost of re-disigning hardware and then fixing all the current units. This was a very cost effective solution, and if you don't look under the hood, you can't even tell!
No, you misunderstand. I'm totally fine with the fix - I'm also very familiar with the sort of adhesive/flexible plastic "tape" they use inside laptops/computers, etc... But calling it "duct tape" is like saying that nasa-grade mylar is the same thing as reynolds wrap
Whether or not this kind of tape is used in other electronics doesn't matter. What matters is perception, and applying duct tape to a $3500 camera is not a perception of strength and quality.
