I think its to address some of the serious issues some copies are experiencing
such as the one I returned, I would rather wait longer for a replacement that actually works
properly rather than risk getting another one that doesnt work

This is what i decided to do as well, wait a it more before getting another unit...experience same issues has you did wickid...
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

It probably lets them figure out some of the procedures of injecting new code into the camera. In any case, whatever the reason, one of the Magic Lantern guys stated that they need to wait for the first firmware update to begin work on it.

Very well then.  It would be cool if these guys could have the focus highlight in live view for the mkiii.  For video this is really useful...

If there is a new firmware for the 5D3, or a new version of DPP, there is absolutely no need to have a recall. Such software updates can be downloaded and installed easily by the user. I tend to think that this "delay" is due to something else than a new firmware or software.

Unless, of course,  they are finding there's no way to update firmware on the camera.

I hope Canon was not fool enough to put a firmware update count limitation like they did with the 7D. Shooting themselves in the foot.
