Canon shows you what good warranty policy is
Jul 2, 2012

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/07/02/canon-powershot-s100-product-advisory

Canon has issued a product advisory for the PowerShot S100 compact camera. According to Canon, some cameras are prone to a lens defect which is caused by a component part coming loose in the interior of the lens. This is more likely to happen in certain environmental conditions such as high temperature and/or humidity. Canon promises to repair affected cameras regardless of the warranty status. This appears to be a separate issue to the lens decentering problems that plagued our experience with the S100 when we reviewed it late last year.

Canon promising to fix affected cameras regardless of warranty status makes sense. Canon knows they have an engineering/manufacturing defect so they acknowledge that warranty status shouldn't matter.

I love my X100 but seeing people get burnt by the sticky aperture issue outside of warranty does not instill confidence in the brand.
