Upload & Sell: Off
I finally got around to sending my worn down 5d3 into Canon for repair. I shipped it just before we left the country for our vacation (about 10 days ago), and i just received email confirmation that they are repairing the camera at no charge under warranty. I had included a detailed letter going over the info that I posted at various times in this thread. On the confirmation sheet, they list "paint wearing off" as the defect. I will not know what all they do to it before they send it back, but those of you in a similar situation, you should act before your warranty expires.
