I recently ordered a 5D from a Authorized Canon Dealer. I had ordered my last Canon camera from them as well with no issues.
Well yesterday I received the 5D. I charged the battery over night and first thing this morning go to power up the camera.
I get to the setting where I need to set the date and it already reads:
4/26/'08 with an EST setting...
With every other camera I have ever bought I always needed to change the date and time. This includes 3 other Canon cameras that I have owned.
Did I get sold a used (possibly store display) camera when I paid for a new camera?
Or did all you 5D owners power up for the first time and the time and date were already current?
I need your help verifying this before I confront the store that I got it from.
