They released the 5D3 too early. They want them all back and will re-release in December.

Hi All

Maybe they discovered as some did on launch day it's missing about 12 megapixels

Do us all a favor and leave this forum. This used to a place where constructive conversations were held. Now it's filled with ignored flamers.

these japanese can not count....

nikon offers the D800 too cheap in the UK and has to raise the price and canon puts a 5D MK3 label on a camera that should be 5D MK2.5.

And accidently added an extra "4" in the MSRP!!!

It would be great to have the issue acknowledged and addressed so rapidly.

Agreed... this would be a huge effort in building good will toward the brand/company.  Canon has been hesitant to ever publicly acknowledge problems, much to the chagrin of many loyal shooters.  Seeing Canon step up this quickly would certainly help rebuild some of their credibility... at least in this frustrated shooter's mind.

It's also easy to spot people who judge cameras only by the megapixels.  ::)

Spotting Nikonians is easy!  ::)

Actually, unfortunately it has 4 megapixels too many.

I'm starting to think (IF this turns out to be true) that now might not be the best time to buy a $6,800 body.

Maybe Canon's quality control & production facilities aren't what they should be since the Earthquake.  :o

I hope they can turn over the camera during recall service, mine is only 5 days old. :(

I wonder if this is the same "hardware issue" that the 1D X suffers with.

Seeing as how it costs ~$200 to rent the 5D3 for a week, I think Canon should include a $200 check when they return our bodies back to us in a week.

Also, if it's just a firmware issue, can't that be resolved by a simple download and update?

As long as they dont comment on the source of the recall it will be hard to sa if ohardware or firmware.

Maybe, but 800/5.6 and 200/2 owners are few so I doubt a camera wide re-call.  I'll send in my 5D3 for my 200/2 if I had too.  Free shipping all around of course, and not cheap mail, I'm talking overnight FedEx/UPS.
