OK I had to cover the viewfinder lol. It did change exposure. Oh well...

Make sure you have the shutter button down half way so that it is constantly calculating the exposure when you do the back light. You can also do a search for "5d mark iii light leak videos" that will show how it is done.
So when i take video, it looks like its in focus, and when i upload it to the computer, some clips are in focus and some aren't... is anyone else having these issues??? or is there a trick that i am missing? when i try the autofocus, it looks way out of focus, so i try to do it manually... thanks for any help

Glad you found it out, it wasn't apparent that you missed that step.
You can also press the info button and then the AF point selection button on the top right back corner and see and adjust them on the rear lcd.
Your focus is probably shifting because you have AI Servo on. That is for tracking objects. You can switch to AI Focus or just the regular focus. Its in the manual. You can change focus types by pressing the mf function button on the top of the camera. The mf function button will only change modes after you press the focus select on the back top right of the camera. Also in the manual.Thankyou so much!!!!
Guess I should mention I live in the USA in Los Angeles...
I have had the same issue, and on sunday Adorama had some in stock, got my order in and they shipped on monday. Others called monday and they were already sold out. I had noticed they listed 12 on ebay friday and it seemed to make sense they had others in stock. You may want to watch the adorama on ebay and see when they list again. It worked for me. Free shipping and no tax paid at the time of order. I'm in Ca. as well.
I was waiting for B&H but gave up. I normally order all my stuff through them. This was my first order with Adorama. So far so good. Time will tell but they seem to have a solid history like B&H. Hope this helps.
Seems as though everyone is enjoying their new equipment. Thats a good thing to hear. For the user who asked what I ordered, I got the body only.
Whats funny is, I've never made money from my photography, but I was just asked to shoot a few music videos(cam hasn't arrived just yet) Pay=1300
So theres a little over a 3rd of my cost of the camera :-)
Hopefully I can get the rest recouped sooner than later lol
