Hall of Famer
Bummer. Is there a service advisory for that as well? And/or a way to tell if your specific unit is affected?
Would it be advisable to simply send in the grip with the camera if you have both and need to get the light leak/control pad issues fixed?
Not officially, maybe at a later point. As you can imagine, I investigated it, anyway, as part of doing my "X-Pert" homework.
My advice? Stay cool, have it repaired if it breaks. Light leakers will get new dials, anyway. I still have a vertical grip here that might eventually break. No big deal, as all 4 dials (camera + grip) are pretty much redundant and can be switched in the menu. So it's not like the camera would become unusable when a dial breaks.
