Are you going to return your 5D3 for the light issue?

I figured it out. People are fabricating issues in hopes that others will cancel their orders/pre-orders so they can get their mk3 faster. It's brilliant, really.

OK, Let me get this straight. Am I going crazy? People are actually concerned about an issue that really isn't an issue?

Lets see here. (I'll be quoting some of you) :)

1. The possible "light issue" only effects cameras while shooting with the lens cap on. What? I gotta repeat that. The "light issue" only affects cameras while shooting with the lens cap on. (Pretty much speechless after this)

2. "It depends whether the next wedding I shoot requires me to shoot with the lens cap on." bw!

3. "No way. Non issue."

4. Virtually all other Canon bodies act the same way

5. 98+% of people who actually own a 5DIII, seem to think this is NOT an issue. And yet, some of the people who don't own one, seem to be complaining the most???

6. "The "light issue" is a great example of what I like to call Internet Wildfire Phenomena. Some ignoramus conjures up a false problem and a bunch of in the dark experts jump all over it until they burn it all down.
Time to move on with life."


I can go on and on, but I think we all get the point. This is a ridiculous topic.
A lot of the guys who have responded (Most of whom I not only respect their work, but their knowledge as well), don't seem to have any sort of issue.

That's good enough for me. :)

I call for this thread to be closed due to the unnecessary mass hysteria this is causing. All in favor vote Aye.

The Chicken Littles will be mighty upset ;)

I think it's a great feature.

Now if I turn on the camera, and shine a flashlight onto the top of my camera, and the meter goes crazy, i know that i left the lens cap on and forgot to remove the view finder cover.

..not that I can't see out the lens would be my first clue..

I think i'd just keep the camera, and use it properly to take photographs.

I vaguely remember reading something about not touching camera and even opening lens to avoid mirror movement in long exposures - not something I use so I glanced and forgot.

If someone were to go playing with light button in long exposures, I think light problem will be least of his issue :)

I would LOVE to replace my 5DII and 7D with a 5KIII though - still waiting to see how it works for bif.

I guess I didn't know my "body only kit" comes with a black lenses. Seriously, I didn't know that was a lens. I thought it was just a cover. :-)

I don't use lenses. I put a pinhole in my body cap and shoot that way.

Somebody from FM posted this... They called Canon tech about it and this was their reply:

"Canon does not have a light leak issue with the 5D III. Any claims of such phenomenon is based on improper testing."

a.k.a - STFU and go shoot a camera as intended.

/end thread.

:D

Thanks guys i just needed to know.

Well, since he has his answer there is no need to continue this foolishness.


Bless the recently fallen and their family and friends.
I have a Cannon with me at all times. You can't take the shot if you don't have something with which to shoot. :rolleyes:
