Causing a smell like this I would not make any more experiments, I would give it to a CPS.

Try with a different camera.
Same with or without the grip.
A different charger.
(like Mr. Spokane said: could be the charger).
Or the camera cant read the information on the chip (is it a problem in the cam or the charger?)
Summary: facts should lead you to the fact, that is common.

I had this painful moment once with the 5d2 and the grip. It was a little bit loose, this blocked the controls on the grip, but not on the body....

Although the 5d2 had a great IQ, the not so good outer AF- fields and focus/recompose sometimes drove me nuts.....

@ rpt: no, he is just bringing one of his pets.
Homer is a cross breed too from a Cavalier King Charles and a husky.
Yours looks like a cutie.

Most dogs are fun. I love them.

I had several cameras, analog, digital.
The 5d3 is the worst one in  the discipline "exposure to the left".
Too conservative. A very small bright spot- a very dark file.
(good for high contrast, but .....).

The 1d4 is more honest (?), more intelligent(?).
And so is the Sony RX100.

Didnt notice a difference using af- mf, will watch this in the future.

Much better than the mk2.
(The batteriegrip didnt fit well, didnt notice the screw was a bit loose, and suddenly the whole camera didnt respond although it had energy.)

Generally the mk3 feels more solid. Little drawback: bit larger, heavier.

The cable: check for "oc3". Canon offers it, many third- party products available in different shapes and lenghts.
But this doesnt open the door to radiocontrolled heaven...

The expanded points are the backup, if the main field doesnt catch up.
The more points are allowed to find structure to focus, the more it could be unpredictable.

2 times strange things happened:
August 12 after a longer burst with the 1D4 and a Sandisk extreme 60mb/s it froze, showed err02, before I could do anything, the message disappeared, no loss.
A few days ago: a shorter burst, 5 or 6 frames, it showed err02 again, it changed only after I waited a few seconds, switched the camera off, then on again. The pictures werent on the CF - card, but on the SD- card. The CF was a Transcend 1000x.

I formatted every card I have the first time on the PC too, then in the camera too.
Too few days gone, but no issues. I will see.......

Since 30 years I have carried my stuff nearly everywhere.
Beaches, mountains, small planes, sailing boats. Never felt unsecure, just thought a few seconds about safety (belt wrapped around my hand, will there be drops of salty water...), but then you should forget this and simply make pictures.
Never had a problem.

Sounds like an advertisment, but: just do it!

3 great lenses.
I have and use them.

If I had to choose only one, it would be the 70-200.
Yes, the IS is very good. Never believed before this could be so helpful.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: my new 5D3 battery life

Make a "Calibration". This means: one time load the battery, till its full, then use it, till the camera shuts down after ??? shots, doesnt matter with or without liveview, making video etc.
So the camera "know" the capacity.
Then the percentage of remainig power should be more exact.

But- as mentionend before- Lion cells dont like to be loaded full or empty, they like to be between 40 and 80% (loads of information is on the net).

A 1000 shots with one load is ok, I think.

Without looking at the shot on the LCD: over 1000 shot minimum. With looking at every shot, depends how long btw, 500 apr.
Loading: keep a Lion- accu between 40 and 80%, this is its comfort zone.
