2d defective 1D this week!!!
Nov 23, 2002

I just tested the 1D I received today from B&H to replace the one I received Monday. The first one (Serial # 18xxx) had noise and banding at ISO 1600 and ISO 800 on the entire left side of some frames. The problem was intermittent. The new one (serial # 17xxx) shows the same problem to a slightly lesser degree, but at a much higher frequency—a large percentage of the frames shot at ISO 1600 have additional noise on the left half of the frame.

I am at a loss to figure out how to get my hands on a 1D that doesn't have this problem—two defective 1D bodies in the same week is a little hard to take. Anyone have any ideas? I just want a 1D that meets Canon's quality control standards, is that too much to ask? What is going on with Canon's manufacturing? And these additional shipping charges are piling up.
