The latest problem found with the 5D3 is the IS noise coming from certain lens-5D3 combination. It may be the case that all these teething issues (soft focus, write error, dead pixel) can be fixed by a firmware/software upgrade but it seems that there could be some hardware issues as well. I have not seen as many issues during the 5D2 release (black dot) and it seems that Canon has dropped the ball in the case of 5D3. Nikon seem to manage their new release better. Anyway this is an excellent example of never to be an early adopter. I'm putting off my purchase of the 5D3 and hopefully all these software/hardware bugs will be resolved in 2-3 months time by Canon.
