I think this poor fellow "Down Under" should give you a sense of what's going on. I don't know if Canon is going to even stand behind the 1DX.

When the 1yr is up it looks like we're all screwed. Look what Canon did to this guy!!! They knew the 1DX was defective and put this man through HELL!!!

Read what this poor guy has been through:

Hopefully the experience with Canon USA will be better than what happened in Australia!

Of note, the post mentions "Mr Nash said that sensor was scratched by a small black piece stuck between the sensor and the mirror, that this was a fault in the camera and should have been covered under warranty."

His issue seems to be more extreme than what's been commented on in this forum (i.e. dust in viewfinder, etc.).

Hi ajy, No one here is talking about dust. We're talking about oil splash and pieces of plastic and metal from defective mirror boxes in canon 1DX cameras. The defective cameras spew broken pieces all over the mirror box making the 1DX a great door stopper for Christmas
