thats what you get for trying to increase your already high profits even more...
this sadly isnt limited to canon bul aal companys lately try to sell stuff that had bad quality controll or just bad parts for more then they sold products a few years ago.
cameras and most other products are supposed to become cheaper over time as the technology is no longer new yet they only go up in price at reduced quality.
look at canons money savings last years...
xxd series went to plastic body's some new lenses went to plastic body's now this issue..
im sure theres ore examples but i cant think of any right now but seriously products are really reducing in quality and increasing in price drasticly lately.
when i bought my canon 450d with the 18-55 is and the 55-250 i spend a total of 890 euro on the 3 parts now the 650d costs 740 euro and the other 2 parts are 55 and 230 euro!
thats 135 euro more or in % its a whopping 15,1 % more expencive! the increase in price only ges up when you go to higher end models!
