On Saturday I got a new 5D III body sent from one of the major NYC camera dealers. The dealer went out of their way to expedite the order and sent it UPS 2 day at no charge as they are now closed for Passover celebrations. I unpacked the plain sealed outer shipping box and took the body out of the retail box, charged the battery, set the date and started shooting. The camera appeared new, however there was a speck of dust in the viewfinder and two on the sensor that showed up in the pics. The file numbers didn't start at zero. Have those of you who have bought new, ever had the file numbers start at 1J6A2607? Did I get an open box or a returned body or do the file numbers start at some random number? I can't contact anyone there for the next week and I'm hoping to get an explanation in the meantime.
