Hi ajy

I just got off the phone from canon's main repair in another state and he has confirmed that the top right specks are a tell tale sign of the "fix" needed. Only cameras with markings in the batt area are fixed. Mine had no markings. He said all new ones with the fix at assembly will also have the markings. I think you may want to get it seen to or ask for another cam.

He did hint at the fact that the 1.2.4 being on board should have meant it was a "fixed" one though!

Thanks for the follow up. If I could correct my reply before, it turns out that it has the number "8" not "0" though nevertheless, it shouldn't have been affected by the service advisory.

However, my impression from reading the service advisory

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer?pageKeyCode=prdAdvDetail&docId=0901e024809120b7

is that the problem didn't necessarily generate specks!

I'll also give them a call too.
