Focus problem connected to serial numbers

Since some of you are reporting 40d's with focus issues, could they be related to the serial #'s, or when they are made, or where?

Does anyone know the answer to this question?

Perhaps there are some "batches" that may not focus correctly.

Does anyone know the answer to this question?

If some of you have a similar series of serial numbers, perhaps they were from the same manufacturing facility or day/week?

I can tell you this, I have shot a number of images with my 10d and have seen many focus problems with it... I just work around it, shoot another or adust the f stops. I notice more with the flash though.

I really would like to upgrade to the 40d and really thought the focus issue would be much better, but listening to so much on the issue is concerning.

Well, my only other suggestion, and my age is going to show now.... I come from a background of many SLR film cameras and never had focus problems because I could only manual focus.

Perhaps, try to manual focus and see if the camera is true.

But, I would be curious when, where and if the issues are related to a common denominator.
