Excessive wear could be international in scope. Perhaps it should be reported to the capital - Helslinki.

Perhaps a few photos would help. Most likely something is rubbing excessively such as a strap or bag.

I think he meant "Finnish wearing off my 5D III" . I guess you've taken 150,000 images of Finnish.

Finnish wearing out on the camera? Hmm... that definitely shouldn't happen, and I suggest you contact customer service.

We Finns are usually very hard to wear out.

If your finnish is totally wearing out, get a new one. We are more than five millions now!

Legend His camera is probably much lighter now with the Finnish no longer attached to the bottom!

I'm Korean but I'm okay with the Finnish. But if the paint is wearing off the left side of your camera after 5 months, you're obviously wearing it on the right side and rubbing it against something abrasive. Maybe studs on your leather jacket or jeans? Oddly, my camera wore a hole in several of my t-shirts. The camera was fine, but then it is a 5D2 and has a superior Finnish to a 5D3...

My box did not have any Finnish in it, is that a special kit from Canon?

See cameras these days? No sisu!

In the good old days more than a few hobbyist photographers secretly induced a bit of brassing on their cameras, the better to look like Winogrand.

The times they are a-changin’.

A worn camera is a loved camera because it is being used. Some fabrics are actually very abrasive. Scouring pads are made out of nylon.

Shelf queens look fabulous but are lonely divas.

I don't worry if my cameras and lenses showing wear and tear. I buy them to use them, not to hold them for resale. (Even so I'm a packrat about boxes, and I do sell equipment when I move on.)

You are getting feedback: fret not, it's not important.

Very true! Cameras aren't like they used to be, and there is definitely a profound lack of sisu.

This truck here (found while going through my archives) is still alive and kicking, which goes to show how far you can go with enough Sisu.


Sisu Diesel by JaakkoHeikkila, on Flickr

And for everyone not familiar with the Finnish term referred to, Sisu can be freely translated as "Guts". Sisu is also the brand-name of a Finnish truck.

Since you haven't done it yet, I'll ask again.
Can you post some photos of the wear?

I can,
"there's no sense of humor on this board"
(except I'd spell it humour),
and I'd be very, very wrong!
