My brand new 5D III has twice locked up giving me Error 80, and requiring I pull the battery. This is within the first 300 pics.
In addition, I have 8-10 times had the camera focus, give me the focus confirmation beep, and then not fire as I held down the shutter button. This has happened in AI-servo mode, as well as straight up green auto everything mode. I've had a 7d for 2 years, and am not unfamiliar with the new focus system. I even read the manual. But it's not really a focus problem, the camera just refuses release the shutter.
I am traveling now so returning is not really possible for the next week. Has anyone else encountered these problems?
