Hi there I bought a 1dx about 3 weeks ago from digitalrev (china) mine came with no A or paint mark in the battery box, but the serial number is way out of the range, and the latest firmware 2. something or other. After a weekend shooting mine has about 80-100 spots on the top left of the picture. It's at canon uk being sorted now. My 1dmk3 also suffered from this, after canon cleaned it, it came back but I ended up cleaning the sensor on that camera. I was surprised to see the fault/problem is stil apparent even on the latest cameras off the production line! It's annoying that you pay a lot of money for these 'pro' cameras only to find faults. But in canons defence or any other manufacturer, if you shooting at 12 fps like I do most of the time, I would expect a bit of lub splashing around, if not the parts are gonna wear out fast!!

I don't agree with you. 1D bodies are ( should be) tested by Canon engineers and pre production models given to pros for field testing. If the camera is designed to take 12fps should do that without any splatter of lubs or whatever in the operating conditions specified by Canon.

If Canon knew about this problems and released the camera their design/quality Manager (s) should get their a...ses kicked up and down Tokyo high street :-).

There is no excuse whatsoever that the problem still exists after the well documented feedback from various users.

I really don't know what is the percentage of 1Dx users with this problem but certainly this issue would put me off spending 6K+ to buy a Dx.
