They should also add viewfinder focus confirmation light issues to the recall fix as well as updating to the latest SD card slot.

Canon forgot to add the DR enhancement circuits to the sensor, these will be retrofitted at no extra cost. Nikon's 3 days in the limelight is over already.

it sure as heck would be nice if it were to add in zebra striping, focus peaking and 1.6x 1920x1080 cropped mode for video, that might get the video guys back singing the praises right away

i highly doubt it, it took mountains of griping and petitions and major industry players to even so much as get manual exposure and 24p into 5D2

but man would it be great and help them

(may as well remove silly autoiso Av max min shutter speed limit too while they are at it)

(and fix the eyefi problem if that is real)

That would be a real shame if 5DMkIII ends up being recalled. Hopefully, a few firmware updates should stabilise the camera design.

The 5DMkIII has shown a major promise as a very capable and versatile camera.......a few minor tweaks should make everybody happy.

However, this is a good reminder that one should not be rushing with the purchase of a new camera model. Price considerations aside, it looks like there is a longstanding tendency to release those cameras to the market prematurely. Yes, that lesson was learned with 1DMkIII, and I will certainly not forget it when it comes to 1DX.

Obviously they want the meter to work correctly when the lens cap is on. Hence the recall.

Speak for yourself.

I'm glad I jumped on it, even if a few minor issues arise.

Canonrumors reports it is for a firmware revision or maybe new DPP but just a holdback and not a recall of exisiting cameras already out there.

Shoosh, we are keeping that secret to catch Nikon by surprise.

I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

Would think after your Mark III adventure you would be hesitant buying a new "Conundrum" camera before it is proven and the bugs are worked out......I guess it was just to tempting....

Amazing ... History repeats !!
Kinda like buying a Ford Pinto twice !!
Buy you did.
You accepted a defective 1D3 from Canon and Shot Off about it for a year ...

Imagine his situation now, he might have to send back 79 of them...except for the one that he opened up....

Good thing the NYC stores were closed this past weekend, I was about to pull the trigger on a 5d3.....

I have the 5Dmk3 and over a 5 day shoot it froze on me about 8 times were I had to take the battery out to boot it up. Canon want me to send it back but I have another big concert to shoot maybe afterwards. The camera is hard to let go of once you use it. It is so good in low light situations and a real pleasure to shoot with. The photos are stunning straight out of the camera and I shoot in raw. They are sharper and really pop with colour. Link below if anyone is interested in seeing a few...ISO range 1250=6400, 70-200f2.8

It just seems odd to me that the camera and software would be released with such obvious defects, defects which should have become apparent with pre-release product testing. Did they not test multiple lenses of all focal lengths on the camera to make sure the AF and other electronic functions worked properly? Did they not have independent groups of persons test the latest DPP prior to shipping the first camera? This is a major international company acting like a Mom & Pop start-up. (But none the less....this is a cool camera )
