Please don't put words in my mouth. I never said nobody has a problem, and indeed mentioned specifically my copy seems to have no problem in actual use. That my copy (so far) and many others' copies seem to not have the issue does not equal yours and some others also don't have the problem.
Don't take opposing tests that don't confirm your findings as offensive or an attack on you. It's just another data point trying to figure out whether this is a camera issue overall or an issue with certain copies.
Throwing a fit about it when someone doesn't confirm what you're saying certainly doesn't help your case.
Becuase its not data ..walking around and taking pics of a fire hyd. is not a test. Yet because you did your "test" you come to the conclusion
that and, I suspect, many many people's copies) this is not an issue.
. I didnt put words in your mouth, I quoted you.
I am far from throwing a fit, and you really didnt do any test to confirm anything.
You could though, just to prove you are right. Put your camera on a tripod. Simulate the same thing I did (except at 1.8 instead of the 1.4) in my test. shoot 20 shots in numbered order through the view finder. That is data, shooting a flag at F/11 and calling your copy good because of it means nothing.
