Seems to me that a necessary trade-off for the camera - not just for the price, but as an evolving thing - is that there will be options/components that work better in some situations than others at different points in time.
Some say that film is an unstable capture medium - but you take the risk that there's no leaks in the mag and that the loader won't open the wrong can.
Which is not to falsely paraphrase you, Mike. Agreed that the above mantra is very risky (and there are probably a lot of fans jumping in without thinking it through). But there's risks worth taking and risks that aren't. Don't know whether you're going to find a customer returns policy that is going to reach as far as you want it to. The camera functions well in some conditions, not so well in others. Maybe you shoot perfectly happily for a few months then your next film has lots of police sirens and gunshots. Should you be able to return it now that it doesn't meet your next set of requirements, even though you knew about the rolling shutter issues going in? (Again, not to misquote you - I assume you are thinking more about unknown issues coming to light which prove fatal (which I think is not that likely, but agree that it's still possible)).
