IDX - Defective out of the box! Oil Splash & Focus

Open the box today of a new 1DX that has an "8" in the sixth number.

Canon's recall notice stated that only 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 on the sixth place were affected.

After 107 shots, I looked up at the sky to shoot a plane and I see "Black Specs" inside the view finder.

Then I try and take more pictures and the AF is not locking on.  Then I go inside and look at the shots I took and they are for the most part all out of focus.

I called CPS and they said "Send it in we'll fix it".

Are they crazy?  I just paid $7,000.00 for a body and it's defective and Canon says send it in???

Camera is going back to B&H, not their fault.

If I get another 1DX it will be once Canon fixes this issue in manufacturing.  I've had oil issues with lenses and cameras and they are NEVER the same.  It will just be a matter of time for another FAIL

I can just imagine being in another country shooting an event and getting screwed with this issue.  The good thing is I found out now...

Sorry to vent... but this is a real bummer!
