EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Product Advisory
« on: April 13, 2012, 05:17:08 PM »
Oh well....I'm 15mins away from Canon Service Center in Irvine, CA. Same day service I hope  ;)

Same here being 15 mins away.  However (you may know this), if you are a CPS member don't bother to wait in line when you arrive.  You can go straight to the desk and avoid the meaningless wait.  I've never had my lenses or camera back in the same day.  Typically a 2-4 day wait as a CPS (free) member.  Waits may be shorter if you are a paying CPS member.  Hope that helps.


Yes I would agree with that..done!

mcintoshi - 9 days and counting !

The author writes
The Mark III crops at low ISOs are more attention-grabbing than the Mark II at first glance, but this really is just down to sharpening. Take the Mark II image and apply greater sharpening..,

Please someone correct me if I am wrong but I disagree here.  Once you apply a sharpen at any magnitude you increase noise.  Did the author overlook this aspect?  If this is true then no they are not similar and the 5D III would clearly outperform the II.

Open to anyone's comments on this.

Canon General / Re: eBay scam?

I had a similar experience on Amazon.  About 6 months ago I spotted a brand new 5D Mark II for $1700.  The camera was listed under an Amazon account that sold Fragrances and Scents they also had a stellar scorecard.  I wrote to this seller and they replied stating they got it as a gift but had no use for it.  They requested my email address stating they would send instruction on how to pay with Western Union which was the first red flag.  I replied with my email in hopes only to trap their IP address.  I followed their game and figured out what they were doing.  They hacked a legitimate seller on Amazon, used their account to bait a suspected buyer.  Once the hacker got the email via Amazon email account, he requested use of the victim's email address.  The hacker wrote me and I recorded his IP address in the header of the email and did a trace to find out he was using an ISP (internet service provider) in NY.  I called their support team and reported to them the scam and IP and they closed the account.  Wouldn't you know it, the hacker opens another email account with the same ISP and writes me again.  This went on several times until finally he was shut down for good.  This assures the old adage, if it's too good to be true it probably is.  Hopefully I saved a few people from getting taken by this scammer.

Unkbob - After looking at your photos there was one thing that peaked my curiosity and that was the Made In and Assembled.  Strangely enough your "old" battery shows "Made In China" but the new states "Cell Made In Japan pack Assembled in China".  I grabbed my 7D bought through an authorized Canon Reseller and mine says the latter "Cell Made In Japan pack Assembled in China".  Perhaps this may assist you further.
