And what about the long term as the glue from the tape begins to dissolve and to spill at the electronics? The repair is short-term, but in the the warranty period should not be anything wrong with that, and after the warranty is no longer a problem of the manufacturer, but a buyer. Sorry for my poor English
wow - I have no words to describe this... so this is what a $3500 camera looks like?
Quote from: ttmphotography on May 02, 2012, 02:55:58 PMI thought the problem was only on some models with certain serial numbers. If that is true, were there other camaras manufactured without tape that did not have a light leak (and if so, how not)?It's not like some cameras had the tape and some didn't before the problem was reported.That's what I thought also. Wasn't it the 6th digit with a 1 or 2 in it?

It was all a plot by that Korean camera club to drive up prices of the original pre-fix model's long term resale value. Three years from now people will pay huge premiums for used copies without the fix.
Suppose DXO finds that Canon's L-tape tape has a light transmission coefficient of 1%, and they give the tape a score of 86%. Then Nikon invents a piece of piece with a transmission coefficient of 0.95%, and they get a score of 96%. Imagine the howls...
Wow now my lens cap macro pictures will be shot at their correct exposure! Yeay.
This forum is prone to sometimes get hysterical like a class of tween girls. This was a tiny problem (I have one of the early models and have not bothered to do anything) and the addition of tape as a final resolution proves it. Electrical equipment manufacturers commonly use this type of special tape for various reasons. Simple problem - simple fix. Let us let this rest. Now for those seeking a more proper $3,500 type solution to this tiny problem, I am curious what might that look like? Full re-engineering of the camera to also produce 36.3 MP?
