This is not good. I wanted it to work well soooo bad too. I tried to deal with all of the 1DX issues and gave up. Returned it.

I could not find any of your posted problems with your 1Dx that you returned!

Can you help me out here with some posted problem?

Hi Walter,

I've had 3 defective copies of the 1DX all were "marked" fixed by Canon or I was told it was not defective and each one failed the same wasy.

Is there a question I can answer for you about defective Canon EOS 1DX cameras that are manufactured with defective parts that cause it to fail.

The blabk specs people see are shavings of plastic or metal and or oil spalsh from a piece of plastic rubbing up on metal.  At some point it HAS to fail over and over even after being fixed.  No amount of lube or oil can stop it. No way it will make it to 400,000 exposures as advertisied

After being through this THREE times and reading reports from people all over the world many of know that the 1DX is defective in design AND manufacturing

Know that the 1DX cannot focus when this issue rears it's ugly head.  And there is NO WAY ANY 1DX with this metal rubbing on plastic will make it to 400,000 exposures!   The design and manufacturing is defective.

Canon should make the cameras right and replace each one they sold as they know they sold defective cameras.

This really sounds like a class action law suit in the making

As long as the big agencies ( Getty, EPA etc) don't complain Canon won't do anything other than the recent fix ( temporary). If they re-design the part probably Canon will make a re-call for a permanent fix ( see 1D MKIII saga).

Keep in mind that competiton between Canon / Nikon pro camera is more or less settled and I dont think Canon is motivated enough ( at the moment) like they were when the 1D MKIII had the AF issues at the time that Nikon had a better pro-body with the D3.
