maybe they found the problem for the AF not working at F8? 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

This would be the best and forced me to buy the one at last :)
The other possibility is that they realized they priced it too low (just sadly joking)

Does anyone know what Canon's policy should be regarding international recalls?
I bought mine in B&H and a friend based in NY brought it to me in Israel.

If a recall does occur, does Canon cover shipping?

IS sound issue with the 200 & 800mm perhaps.

That sounds like it as it's the only issue Canon officially acknowledged so far for 5D3.  The other announced issue with DPP is only about the software itself.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw the 5D3's light leak at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Why can't I applaud you for a Ferris Bueller reference?

I just called Canon tech assistance and CPS.  They say its a BS rumor. NOTHING AT ALL. THERE WILL BE A firmware UPDATE FOR THE 800MM LENS. Called national camera exchange they said they have heard nothing at all.

I called Kenmore camera here in Seattle and they hadn't heard anything about it, no emails/calls from Canon.  If there is an issue it may be narrowed down to a small batch and they only contacted the vendors that the batch went to.

Craig,

Ironically, not verifying if this is indeed true, and not knowing why Canon might be issuing the recall, is what will create this firestorm you want to avoid.  Just saying...

I'm pretty sure that Ken Rockwell's review forced Canon this recall :) :) :)

Maybe, but 800/5.6 and 200/2 owners are few so I doubt a camera wide re-call.

No matter how few owners there are, if that problem exists and it's a mechanical problem that needs to be fixed in the camera, they have to recall everything out there right?  It doesn't make sense to me if they just recall from those who have the lenses in question.  So you'd prefer to send in yours later when you plan to get 200 f/2 IS ?   :o

I recall Ferrari paid a fortune to get one of their cars back from an owner who tried to convert its engine to run on LPG.

Perhaps Canon is worried about the AA filter surgeries?  ;D I kid of course...

That's Canon not Ferrari - it looks bad, not sounds bad :)

I am just thinking happy thoughts: either not true, or it only applies to one batch.
