Re: how long does the repair take

Well they're kind of addressing it but it shouldn't really have been released in the first place IMO. The AF coupled with an LCD/WB suffering from jaundice just happens to pass testing and goes on sale... Fantastic for share holders, not so good for photographers.
Pity, it's capable of such amazing IQ, if it's in focus.

I'm glad actually, it's made my decision to upgrade really easy, wait for the D900 or 5D Mk IV. Yes, Canon has their issues as well, although not as bad and theirs is easier to fix.

Making a good camera is one thing, making a good camera that works is quite another. I'm just wondering if either of them have ever pulled it off in a digital sense?
