If you had a Mk 3 within the affected serial no. range BUT think the AF has nothing wrong with it would you send it in to Canon anyway?

I got mine a month ago and to me the AF seems great. I shot some of my boys rugby today and out of about 250 photos maybe 10 were OOF.

I shot mainly with Continuous AF track priority but also tried Main Focus Point Priority.
Tracking Sensitivity on 0
Enable surrounding assist
AF Priority/Tracking Priority

And also with PIX's Picture Style.

Here's one of my son making a tackle - SOOC. I know it may not be perfect to blow up to 30x20 but what do you guys think.

F4, ISO 640, 1/800

Its a tough call. Depends on whether you are concerned about resale value down the road. If you are, what do you think will be the first question most folks will ask even if it looks brand new, shoots perfectly, and washes your car for you?

...I have two (2) bodies, one in the "list", and the other is a blue-dot with higher serial #.

The answer is NO, you should not send it in. In this case, you take a contrarian approach to, for basically the following reasons:

1. Works fine now. You send it in, receive it and then, somehow, you develop "resonable doubt" that, because of this last work, something is not "right" (happens all the time, a normal psychological process).

2. You send it in, and comes back with dust, dirt, a finger-print here or a "busted" screw or whatever other issue you don't like... which eventually triggers back #1 above, automatically (assuming you are picky about these things).

3. Canon will always do the job, regardless of who owns it. As long as it is in the list, give the next owner the opportunity of having the job be performed to his/her satisfaction, on a virgin camera/unit. And that(contrary to conventional belief) is an actual plus in the sale, because it is assured by Canon, during transfer of ownership.

Cheers,

PIX

Answer...

PIX, how are you at ISO 12800? are you just using EC+1 @6400? i cant wait to put my hands on a mk3!! UGH

...That's correct.

It is basically the exact same "contemporary" approach to higher-ISO values employed in recent cameras, only that we have the blessing (with the 1D3) to have access (off-board, via Canon's ZB/RIT software) to the same process implemented on-board, thus allowing us to extract results way beyond the "nominal" capabilities of the camera.

The 1D3 already outputs true, analog-gain ISo6400, and it is capable of providing guaranteed photo-quality results anywhere between ISo8000ec and ISo10000ec (and you can get there even pushing the .JPGs!).

There's abundant image-quality provided, already, by the 1D3.

I thought to get a higher ISO you'd go a - EC (i.e. 12800 = 6400 - 1EC) and not a + EC...maybe I misread something somewhere or mixing apples and oranges...Did I? Clarify please as I don't normally try this or shoot that high of an ISO.

Thanks...Al

Methodical, I think maybe he means +1EC after the fact, like in Raw or PS (ie, you add back +1 EC).

Absolutely...

...We are talking about the push during conversion (effectively multiplying RAW values when sliding the EC slide-bar to +1.00ec in your RAW converter), instead of photo-capture under-exposure, which I would rather describe as -1.00EV (for clarity/distinction purposes).

Therefore, wherever you see any "EC" or "ec" (indistinctively) in my notes, I am referring to changes happening after the image has been captured. Instead, if you read "EV" or "ev" (indistinctively), that relates to adjustments performed at capture/photo-time.

Nice shot and kitchen. Btw, your next image should be of a cappuccino with the fancy milk designs on top.

...Not as fancy, but these I drink x2, every morning.

Received my 1d3 yesterday. I wasn't impressed. I was in aww.. This thing has an unbelievable amount of options compared to my 1d2. Its night and day. The screen is huge, but the body feels smaller. Not by much but a little bit, also lighter. The 10fps vs 8.5fps was actually noticeable. I was shocked. Not having to hold buttons down to make changes seemed so much nicer. I had tried a few before but they were set up, all i had to do was press the shutter. Its kinda overwhelming even. I haven't had a chance to test the two side by side but I should tonight. Should be fun. I can't wait to make the comparison.
