p.1 #1 · ruh-roh raggy - 5d3 firmware re-issue


A month ago I updated my 5d3 to the latest firmware that is supposed to fix the firmware so the AF adjust doesn't get set to -8. Well, it just happened to me for the first time shooting my brand new 24-70 II.

Anyone else have this experience since the firmware update?

Have been shooting mine for a couple weeks without this happening. I just went and confirmed with all my glass and each one is set the way I set it. Did you have this issue prior to the firmware upgrade?

Nope. That's the ironic thing - I've had this particular 5d3 since the beginning of march and never had this issue. The 24-70 is brand new as I said, and I was testing it and noticed that it was front focusing. I checked the AF adjust and saw that it was -8; I know it was +6 last weekend as I was fiddling with my 85 and tweaking it.

I checked again and the firmware is definitely 1.2.1

Report it to Canon ASAP. I did before the FW upgrade and initially they wouldn't believe me but they did in the end.

If it's still happeneing they need to know. What a bummer.

I bought a brand new 5d3 a couple weeks ago (firmware 1.2.1). At the same time, bought a brand new 24-70 2.8 v2. I never adjusted the MA and the body never had a different lens on it (studio work). A friend forwarded this thread to me, so I checked. Guess what..."all" lenses were set to -8 MA.

I reported this issue to CPS.

My menu has a "set all lens to -8" as the first item. Below that is "set individual lens" Does everyone have this "crappy" feature?

Another victim. I'd suggest you change the -8 to 0.

If you did not reset the camera after updating the firmware, do that first. Then, if the issue is still happening, report it to Canon.

I haven't had it happen since installing the new firmware.

Same here, also combination 24-70 II and 5D3 switched to -8.

Strangely enough, exif shows 0 !

I have had the -8 bug and know it exists but just for the record did everyone know that if you MA a zoom and have different settings at each end the camera gradually changes the MA setting according to focal length?

For example if you MA'd a lens to be -7 at wideangle and 0 at tele the camera might pick -2 in the middle of the zoom range

Checked mine and found it set to -8. Firmware is 1.2.1
Set back to 0-MF manually. We'll see what happens.

I notice my 70-200 that was set at +2 was out of focus when viewing images. I checked microadjust and it was set at -8 for all lenses. This was supose to be fixed in the firmware. It's obvious it has not been fixed.

Mine didn't go to -8 with the firmware update (although I have had it happen before.) What it DID do was zero out the AFMA settings for the lens which was on the camera when I applied the update. (24-70 2.8L Mk2) All other lenses were not affected. The lesson seems to be to remove any lens before applying the update.

I performed all my microadjustment after the upgrade. The other day I noticed my adjustments were not showing on the exif. I checked the camera and sure enough +2 was there and enabled. I disabled microadjustment and then enabled and it began to work again with no issues thus far.

Crap! I was affected by this before the latest firmware update, I thought *I* had accidentally turned on "set all lenses" to -8.

Now I'm going to have to check it like crazy. I had discovered it at -8 and slapped my head and said "no wonder my shots are not coming out right" and changed it back to 0 and I didn't see it go back.

I applied the latest update with no lens on the camera for whatever it's worth.
