If you are shooting at 17mm a lot on your 17-40mm L, that should give you your answer.

I wasn't stating that it *needed* one , I was just following up on what was reported here :I do not think that a "Huge" firmware update was being implied. We were hoping for a fix that would light up the AF points, and there are some minor bugs reported.
New 5D Mark III Firmware Before the End of May [CR2]
MAY 9, 2012 CANON 5D MARK III, CANON FIRMWARE FOLLOW ON OUR FORUM
There is apparently going to be new 5D Mark III firmware before the end of May. It will address a few bugs, as well as adding some “features”. No mention of what the features might be. It was mentioned there is a possibility of a bug fix firmware update before the “feature” update, a two part strategy if you will.
There have been no mentions of additional features for video.
A junk 35mm film slr or old powershot will do it. Just give them the serial number. They e-mail you a shipping label so you can send it to the recycling center where is will be crushed. I doubt if anyone really cares if you actually send one, they just want a serial number.Why not get a Canon Loyalty Program referb 7D? Costs less or same and 90 day warranty
To get into CLP, don't I have to trade something in?
OH HO!!!!!!!!I'm glad its gone, but its pretty suspicious, a intermittent issue can be nasty to isolate, even for a repair depot. It might have some damage from return shipping to you.
Update on my lens... that clicking noise is now gone!!!!
I left it on the bed for awhile after I got upset.
And now... its silent the way it is supposed to be!!
I hope it was just lube or something that hadn't set in or something that was pushing or idk....
Thanks for the help!
Alright guys,Some of the third party camera repair stations still have a few parts, and they salvage whatever parts they can from severely damaged units. Check with them about possible repairs.
Got the lens, it's optically in great condition, a lil' bit of internal dust but nothing to worry about.
Things to worry about:
- Put two rubber bands on over the loose grip and it seems to be fine...but weather sealing is @ -1
- The part of the lens that houses the rear lens element moves slightly...and moves the rear element by about a millimeter. This I took to be a huge problem, as if that moves while shooting my focus will change. (yes?)
- Did some real quick afmf adjustments...and +20 looks the best. (5dmkII)
Optically it's still a beast, and I don't think I'll be returning it...but is there any way to improve on it's faults? Please share any experiences you may have had!
I focused on the word "mixed" and so far this looked the best of all the other adjustments
OH! O_O they do that?!
yes it was brand new... but I guess it was in stock for too long that lubricant dried up or something.
(just a theory to make my self feel better)
When I first called them about my first return, they told me I had to pay the way there and they would pay the way back...
Thanks guys! Ill call them up tomorrow and get this label!
