I've got a scuff on the hood of the 5d3 where the flash attaches... does anyone know if CPS touch paint touch up on the bodies if you need it done?

haven't heard of them doing this, just get some black matt enamel e.g model paint, touch it up with a tooth pick of super fine brush, then you one of those chux magic erasers to feather it in a bit after it has dried.

those magic erasers might also be able to remove the scuff but don't srubb to hard, just lightly buff, so you don't remove a layer of paint as well.

Or just live with it. Does it affect your photography, if not, ignore the scuff.

I will trade you my near-minty 5Dc (less than 12k clicks) and zero scuffs/scratches for your damaged 5D3. I say that's a rather fair trade. ;)

Unless it prevents you from putting a flash on the hotshoe.... else leave it be. It's a battle scar. It adds character.
