I wonder where all the "must be user error" posters have run off to now?  ::)

Yup, they accidentally packed 1D X's into 5D MK III boxes.  They don't want a bunch of unhappy customers to file a lawsuit ;D

I would be furious!  :P

But why would someone make such a silly thing up and go to trouble to make multiple accounts? Come on.
I don't know.... human nature? The internets are full of them.

And it's been proven true now anyway.
Like in [CR1], you mean?

No I mean call up some of the stores in question and they will tell you just what the posters here do. Maybe the stores are confused, but that is a different matter.

The simplest answer is not that the OP was part of some vast paranoid conspiracy but that the OPs were telling what they legitimately were told by certain dealers.

Got a call from buydig today on my 5d iii shipment. Their stock arrived today but canon has recalled all current stock and instructed them not to shhip until further notice. Somethjngs up. Anyone have ideas? Now hav wont have a camera for the weekend.

That "rumour" doesn't even say anything about a recall, other than it being a possible misunderstanding...

If you have called up a store and personally confirmed that 5D3's are being recalled (or held), I would believe you. But I don't necessarily believe what 3 newly registered posters claim within 10 min of each other, nor a rumour labelled as [CR1].

The simplest answer is not that the OP was part of some vast paranoid conspiracy but that the OPs were telling what they legitimately were told by certain dealers.
You have a pretty low threshold for "Vast paranoid conspiracy" :D Anyway, I was just saying that "I am not a troll" is not a very convincing argument, surely you must agree with that.

Pretty sure almost everyone would agree with that.

RRS issued a voluntary recall on their 5DM3 plates.

Got an email from them last night.
Thanks for that - my L-Plate has not shipped yet - it looks like I will get the Rev.A version instead.

I placed my order for the 5D III body from digitalwonderworld in Luxembourg last week and today I got an email that it was sent with fedex with tracking number, so I don't know whats going on maybe just a rumor.
