I've had my 5D MKIII for a couple days now and have noticed a couple red and green pixels while editing in Lightroom. I know my other bodies have pixel issues but it was never a big deal since Lightroom was usually able to get rid of them with no problem. For some reason LR can't get rid of these two though.

Now I'm considering send it back for an exchange. Am I being reasonable or not?

If I bought a new camera and the images had stuck or hot pixels that needed to be cloned out I'd send it back.

Can you post an image with the problem?

I've payed around with the manual clean trick and it looks like it may have done the trick. Here is an example of what they looked like.

They are easy to cure. I would not fret about them.

Sad to say, cheap or dear cameras, they are a fact of life.

Yea, I think I'll send it back. I mean if they come up in every foto..Dam that would be a bother to have to clone that out of every foto you desire. :confused:

In the long run, it's really if you want to deal with it..."ForEvER"
or
Want to wait 2-4 weeks until they can send you another one.

Forever or a Month? :D

Reviving this thread. My 5D3 developed a stuck pixel after about a month of service. I did the bodycap-on clean the sensor routine and it went away (well actually mapped away). However, a couple of months later and another pixel has gone stuck. Should I be worried about pixel progression (term made up on the fly)? Or is this just a normal course of events? Frankly, none of my other DSLR's had/have this issue.

Stuck pixels are part of the DSLR game. If you want to eliminate them completely, you will have to shoot film. Don't worry about them; it is easy to fix the problem. That said, if I got a new 5D3 with more than 10 or so, I would be taking it back to the store for exchange.
