So I picked up my new ( 3.5 month old ) 5D3 today and saw what looked at first like bubble gum comming out the main dial near the shutter button and I thought how did that get in there. After examining it more it appeared like some kind of small rubber band got lodged in there. Of course I was stupid and tugged on it because i thougt it was foriegn thing that got stuck in there. A piece broke off and I realized it might actually be part of the camera ( maybe a gasket of some kind ).
First, has anyone else had this experience? I never had it with any of the 5 Canon bodies I've owned so I'm not sure what to do. Camera appears to work fine. Before the piece broke off the main dial was difficult to turn which is what caused me to notice it.
Any ideas, any suggestions?
