If you are looking for a camera that actually had problems, mine was definitely showing symptoms. Consecutive frames would be in focus, out of focus, then back in focus. When I was lucky I was getting two or three in focus before it drifted again. This was occurring with multiple lenses, different settings and drive modes.
I also had issues seeing through the viewfinder, to the point that I would check to see if my diopter setting had changed. Spots had just begun appearing on the sensor.

Deborah, any update on how your camera performs post-fix?
Anyone notice a performance improvement?
I just brought mine in to get it done. It has about 120K actuations. I didn't really think there might be a problem with it, other than it tended to front focus with many of my lenses, therefore having them look specifically at that. But when I first took possession of it last August, I was really impressed with it from the first number of football games I shot. I was getting amazing focus consistency on long action sequences. As the season progressed, and I also did a firmware update, I noticed more random mis-focused images in sequences, but chalked it up to being much more familiar/critical of the camera and less wowed with it compared to when it was new. Or the camera losing a touch of performance due to the firmware software adjustment. But now I wonder if maybe something was slightly amiss? Shooting youth ice hockey in dim arenas also tended to fairly frequently mis-focus during mini-burts, to the point where I'd always shoot 2-3 frames to ensure I'd get something sharp... But on the whole never really felt there was something significantly wrong with the camera. Didn't notice any black specks or blurry viewfinder. You know, it was more like a vague issue you'd explain to a CSR at Canon as their eyes glazed over... meanwhile, they're probably thinking 'great, some photo forum measurbator.'
