I am in India and the label on the box has March 2012 import date. The top LCD is very stiff, doesn't bend at all. Though the black border seems about the same size as the press release pictures of the camera.
I just dont understand what is going on. First issues with the DPP, then issues with the Mark III, then the 1Dx and 24-70mm II delay. And there is absolutely no information from the company regarding these issues (except the DPP fix of-course). What the hell is canon doing?
