No sir you did not.  But the solution is simply.  Avoid changing the lens when the sand is blowing or bring along a changing bag.

What exactly are you trying to prove here? I didn't say anything to suggest that Arizona and New Mexico don't have as much of a problem with windblown sand as the Middle East does. Frankly, I don't know whether they do or don't. All I said was that the OP may need to get his camera cleaned more often than those of us who live in a less challenging environment. FWIW, I can assure youo that windblown sand is not a significant problem where I live. And everything I've read suggests that in the Middle East it very well can be.

It is serviced by an authorized vendor. However, there is only one vendor, which is also the distributor in Turkey.

Actually I used my camera mostly indoors, almost 90 percent of the time. Also, there is not much sand in Turkey. Mostly people outside of the Turkey think that Turkey as same as middle east but its climate is so much different than Middle East. It is same as Greece or Italy. Cosmetically my camera is like brand new. Even I do not change the lens most of the time, if I do so, I do it so fast to protect the mirror from dust or etc.

Sand may be the problem who lives in Egypt, UAE or Kuwait. Even Syria and Iraq is much better.

It's really peculiar chance, or extraordinary coincidence.  A human explanation just seems far more likely.

Whether it be the service center or the operator!

The treatment of his camera described by the OP is that of a careful user. So if he goes through three shutters in a couple of years, it's hard to see how it's operator error.

Re: err 30 on 5d mk II

All in all I think there is a production failure at my camera. Also you face a problem if you have bought camera outside of Turkey, they do not accept the warranty in Turkey. Another learning for me was Adorama. This was my second camera from Adorama, I contacted to them, they just said they do not care after first month or so. They just recommend me to contact with Canon Usa. But I know that Bh really cares about its consumers. Even they accept the camera, handle the repair and in some cases offers a new camera. I will never buy a Canon and never through Adorama.
