That site is following CR and CR is following POTN and POTN is following that site. The real circle of confusion is revealed! :lol:

Now *that* was funny!

:lol:

Considering my luck, my pre-ordered body is probably on it's way back home.

:cry:


My answer for most photography questions: "it depends...'

Yupe, it's the batch that got shipped to Russia.

That so called " batch" was one person with the complaint.

Guys, do you remember the deal with 1dmarkII and 1dmarkIIn...:) It didn't take that long for Canon to release the N version because original version has couple of flaws. Can I say 5dmarkIIIn.....???? :)

To me, my 5DIII is perfect. I was going to buy a flash, but the low light is so good and I love shooting ambient, so I didn't even think about a flash anymore. Maybe I'll get it later for those fill flash in the sun shot when needed.

I was even contemplating on buying a 1Dx, but didn't feel the need to anymore.

Therefore, Canon realized that they had released a camera so close to the 1Dx that they are going to lose sales to the 1Dx. That's why the recall, so they can dumb down the AF and sensitivity, so at least the 1Dx can sell.

This is great news for early adopters. We will have good 5D3's and the new ones will be 5D2.5's. Now you can't buy a real 5D3, you'll have to settle for the 5D2.5 or the 1Dx. :-)

This had happened to the Playstation 3. The early adopters had a unit that played everything. The second shipments became buggy when trying to play older games because Sony removed some components so that you can't play Playstation 2 games. Then the later ones just didn't play any old games anymore. So people with older games had to go and buy another old console, which they were still selling at that time. A lot of people were pissed when they got it home and realized it.

If that's the case, i guess it's time to sell my 5D3 for double the street price! PROFIT!:lol:

At least wait for the recall to become official, and to know why too...

I think the sarcasm was missed :p

Canon wouldn't REALLY do that...:p Its their own fault that the 1DX - which was announced before the 5D3 - has been delayed again and again thus allowing the 5D3 to step into the spotlight and steal the sales from it :lol:

Maybe "Mark III" is just bad luck for them. :p

"4" is bad luck in Japan.
