Re: Cheap labor and nothing more

I am not sure if I should return the camera or not, especially considering the dust inside the lens where I cannot clean.

I would return it even if the camera as a model was a keeper (which IMO it certainly is not on image quality grounds) - the zoom shouldn't be bumpy according to other HS users and there shouldn't be grease on the underside the front element ..

  • Japanese company item made in China

don't worry about that - some of the worst put together lenses are still made in Japan - Sigma consistently throw out dud after dud off their japanese production lines as do (to a lesser degree) Tamron and Canon .. Funny how Chinese constructed Tamron 70-300 VCs and 18-270VCs are more consistent . Hmmm . another example is the Canon G9 / A650IS debacle, three out of three G9s in our family had sensor misalignment giving the effect of a decentered lens (blurred side) every single chinese constructed A650IS I've seen (about 6 in total, I've owned Three) were perfect .
