p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Do new 5D3 kits have a blue dot??


I received my replacement 5D3 from Amazon and am a bit concerned. The lens box has a blue dot on it, and things are packed a little bit differently (the warranty card for the lens is not in the box with the lens).

Did I receive a used camera kit from Amazon??

Anyone know what the blue dot is about ?? ??

Maybe they thought it was a 1D Mark III. They had blue dots...

Yeah, or they marked it as 'smurfy'.

Sounds like you may have gotten a used or open box from Amazon. I not sure about the blue dot, but I do know you should have gotten a warranty card for your lens.

I have seen the blue dot on a few boxes of new cameras. Maybe it's post light leak. But my latest box does not have a blue dot on it.

Yep, sounds like the box has been opened. Was the replacement camera supposed to be new? Can you run a shutter-count on the body to see if it's been used?

Sometimes if an item is non-repairable the replacement will be refurbished rather than new. Garmin recently did this when my GPS broke. The replacement unit was described as refurbished but looked like new (much better external condition than the beat-up one I sent into them). I was happy.

I don't see any blue dot on new 5dIII box.
Has warranty card too.
I would think if you returned your camera for the focus issue, they should be giving you a new one, not refurb/repaired.

To be clear, mine has a lens warr. card, but it was not packed in the same place as my first kit. It just had me wondering, along with the blue dot...

All 24-105s since the initial 24-105 debacle have a blue dot on the box, AFAIK.

My 24-105 box that came from a kit (but I bought it used) has a blue dot.

Just got my new 5D3 last Friday (still virgin, bad weather for shooting ) will check for blue dot on the box when I get back home in 3 hours time.

EDIT: No blue dot on my box

Is the blue dot an Amazon issue? I recently received a new 5DIII kit with 24-105 and no blue dot. But I purchased it from Samy's online.

No, I got the first kit from Amazon and it had no blue dot. The second replacement kit from Amazon had a blue dot. Weird. I called Amazon and they said it was from the manufacturer, not something they had added to the item. I boxed up the blue dot lens and sent it back with the camera that was defective (right side AF cross points were horribly out of calibration).

My Camera had a blue dot on the box.

The lens warranty and camera warranty should be together in the box, the lens warranty will not be in the lens box.

It sounds to me like everyrthing is in order.

I wonder if Canon did this to differentiate between the non light leak and light leak units.

My first kit, with light leak, no dot. Second box, camera only, post light leak, also no dot. Both were bought from Adorama.
