Could you post a photo of the scratches?

This may be a dumb question but are you sure they were firing at only 1/64?
Try test firing one at 1/64 ten times in a row and see if it overheats and activates the red screen. Then wait and try 20. It shouldn't overheat at that power level.
The Kirk plate looks to be very nicely rounded and contoured to the camera body.
I borrowed a friends 5d3 for a few days because he's been bothered by the IQ. I've shot lots and compared images taken with it and my 5d2 and the 5d3 look softer and gives some images a plasticky look.
The owner still has his 5d2 and his thoughts are the same.
Every shot taken by the 5d3 needs to have to be put through high pass filter in photoshop to make them look as sharp as the 5d2 taken SOOC.
I am a noobie on this forum but have been following this issue, as I own one of the affected 5D iii's. From what I can tell on reading up on this issue and reading the forums, I too am in the camp that this is a non-issue and will not affect my photos. However, it is still disappointing to spend 3.5K on a camera and then have this happen. This was my jump from crop factor to full frame, and I trusted Canon. Not saying I don't any more, but I still don't understand it all.
So a technical question, and likely a dumb one - does the leaked light just hit the light meter, or does it also hit the sensor?
did canon fix the problem and will be implementing this change on all new units produced in the factories from now on?
eg. are the new models xxxxx3xxxx onwards going to have the light leak fixed?
what actually happened over here?
In my opinion yes, they will fix the design but they will not tell you.
Like I said people, stand up, return your cameras and send a clear message to canon saying we are not ignorant fix your defective design.
Canon Europe will prepare a "Fix-Kit" for all defective Cameras starting mid may. The Service Center will have work 2h on each camera.
So there is a real issue :-)
