Same problem when I sent mine to canon. It's 'within specs'. I don't think I'll send it in a third time. :cry:

Got mine back today. It's a miracle, the thing seems to work. I think it's the first time I've ever experienced the AF system acting how it's supposed to. I like how it went from 'camera in spec' last time I sent it in, to completely replacing the mirror box this time.

Finally, a repair that makes sense. Defective mirror box assembly. A reasonable explanation would be that the mirror that reflects into the AF sensor could have been slightly curved or angled or something of that sort.

Maybe you should try again and mention this to them.

my friend's does the same thing. Any idea what the manufacture date of yours was? it seems like some from 2012 were affected by this
