Lepus, if it makes you feel any better, I received mine last Thursday, but it rained all weekend so I haven't had a chance to fly it outside yet.  Gave me lots of time to tinker with the settings and prepare for that first flight!  I know you were bummed about that one week wait after shipping.

So the gimbal is held on by 4 little rubber grommets, at first I didn't think it was secured at the front but it is.  There is a little mark on the left hand side by the front left sensor, nothing big, I would considered it a blemish.  But there are a few dust particles inside the lens.  I thought the blades would be difficult to put on, but they are not, they work similar to a child proof medicine bottle.  Push in and turn, just make sure you hold the motor itself.  Gimbal clamp and cover were perfectly on.  The battery on the remote was 35% when received and the battery is at the 25% mark or less.  Right now charging the controller and battery.  It is too dark to fly.  First thing I did was purchase the DJI Care Refresh.  This thing is well put together and is my first drone, so I'm taking my time with each part.  I have read the manual at least twice cover to cover and have read the quick start.  After the batteries are charged I will do an upgrade.  I don't think I will be flying in the house tonight, but hopefully get a flight in tomorrow.  I'll also pick up a small camera back at Staples or somewhere for 30$ CAD, couldn't justify paying 80$ USD for the Combo pack.  This thing is well built and solid, it is worth the wait, but if you are anything like me being impatient it is hard to wait.  I ordered on Sept 30, receive notification on Nov 8, and it arrived 7 days later.  This thing had to go through customs in China, USA and Canada.  USA was the longest customs line of any, Canada is quick, probably cause the US checked it well over.  The box it came in was about 12" x 12" x 6" for just the Mavic Pro.

Ok so the quality control is lacking on the gimbal and lens.  I don't think the people assembling these things are taking their time.  You can clearly see scratches on the gimbal and dirt in the lens.  I have not powered the craft on yet, just taken it out of the box and examined it.  I'm not sure if these specs will cause any distortion in the pictures or will be noticeable, but scratches on the gimbal are a little bit annoying.

Glad you recieved your Mavic but i am super disappointed with all the posts with dust in the lens.
Just terrible quality control but i guess that is what happens with mass production and cheap labour costs.

It is possibly to have a lint/dust free room for lenses.  I'm not saying that this amount will affect pictures or video as I don't know yet.  But the scratch on the outside of the gimbal is something that can be prevented for sure.

So to update on the lens, I did not notice any specs in the pictures.  I've had 4 short flights in beginner mode.  Tried to use intelligent flight mode and the menu for it won't come up.  I think it is the phone I have  Moto X Play.  It is bigger then the holder in thickness so that sucks.  Very responsive.  I forgot to select the home point so when I hit RTH, the damn thing flew over my house, and I was like WTF where are you going.  Anyways managed to stop it and have it come back.  So much easier to fly then one of those cheapo quadcopters..  Very responsive.

True, but these are obviously not assembled in much of a cleanroom. Not one adhering to ISO 14644-1:2015 standards unless it has a really high ISO class.
