That is too bad. I doubt Canon will ever do anything about the light pattern and density. That would mean a recall.

Fantastic! It will probably be included in the March planned release of firmwares.

FYI, I found if you use 9-point Expansion AF w/ Assist Beam, It works great! Single point is still slow though. :/

Wow... maybe some people whining in this forum would be better served at Canon's forum. Threads like "Can we all send a complaint to Canon to fix the AF-Assist focusing on the 5D3?" or "I feel sooo screeewed by Canon's pricing" might get actual Canon employees responding to this drivel.

I knew Canon was going to respond with something after this post. They had to.

hey take the credit, man you deserve it.  many of us were in that thread but frankly it really does feel like that thread convinced Canon to act.  it took while, and the silence promoted a lot of amusing speculation  and even some harsh words from time to time, but in the end the message got through.  wahoo go team go
