Getting grouchy and complaining works to a degree……what a shame it has to come to that sometimes.
Earlier I received an e-mail confirmation that the camera has been cleaned and shipped via FedEx. I should see it next week.
So, at least I’ll be getting my camera back without the greasy stuff on the image sensor. It wasn’t covered under warranty (weird since it was brand new), but it’s on the way back. Anything like that ever comes up again I’ll head for Tempe camera. The return / repair process with Canon just fell down on itself for me and I don’t ever want a repeat of that situation.
