Hi All, so all my postings regarding the 5D Mark III & w/all your helpful responses have gotten me to this point. I just got my 5D Mark III !!! I'm 1/2 excited & 1/2 don't-know-if-I-should-be-concerned. I just got my 5D Mark III, and this being my first refurbished purchased ever (bought it directly from Canon Store), I have slight reservations. So, I come to you all for some questions I'm not sure about. First thing I checked was to see was the serial # and see which batch this body belongs too...to my slight concern, the 6th digit is a "1", so this belongs to the very first batch. And of course this being refurbished, should I be concerned? If so, what should I specifically look for. Good thing is, it came with the latest firmware update, version 1.2.1 (so I can be somewhat confident Canon looked into & tested this camera & updated the latest firmware before putting it on sale). I just wanted to throw this out and see what I should be concern and look for in particular?
Also, which site is the 'most accurate' in checking out the shutter count for this body?
Thanks again all!!
