Hi,
After buying an used 5dm3 I noticed the LCD has a purple tint specially in comparison to my 70D.
For this test I took the picture from the 5Dm3 (latest firmware), took the SD and plop it in my 70D and you can still tell the purple cast.

Once I put them in my computer the images look fine.
It's just on my 5Dm3 lcd.

BTW both cameras have the same Picture Style set to NEUTRAL.

Is this normal???

Seems to be an issue that has affected a small number of 5D3. :(

That being said, make sure both are set to the same white balance and that the LCD brightness is equalized between the two bodies to rule out WB and brightness/contrast as culprits.
