This thorny but waxing issue continues to linger and persists.
Yes, it is a problem for all sides. People, including I, return cameras. Retailers and manufacturers do NOT want to lose too much money on returned cameras.
But, there has to be a better, more equitable solution.
But, as can be seen from the Forum posts folks still have concerns.
Sony, for a fact, do not provide ANY seals on their cameras or lenses.
This, of course, is to HELP the resellers.
At a minimum all cameras, above say $450, should come sealed, in a sealed bag inside a sealed box.
There should also be a (hard to reset) shutter actuation count that can be displayed.
Otherwise we will continue to have this problem.
I am dreading getting the Sony a6500. What will I see in terms of shutter actuations.
