I would like a reader of this thread (or anyone, actually) to comment on the following:
I live in Canada and just bought a 1DMkIII from the POTN listings. Although the serial number falls in the "danger" list, so to speak, the seller indicated, in his words, "the focusing has been absolutely spot on since the camera was serviced in 2011, when it had the mirror box, shutter plus what Canon called 'other internal components' replaced". He also stated that the "focus fix" was performed prior to his purchase (he bought it from who I presume was the original owner).
Please understand it's not that I don't trust the seller or doubt what he told me, but just in case there is a problem he had not discovered, I would ask that any Canadian, who also purchased a used 1DMkIII with an affected serial number inform me if they had any luck getting information and service from Canon (or CPS ... I belong) in Canada regarding the "focus fix" issue with their particular camera.
Thank you for any help or information you can supply ...
