"hit millions of happy users"

you don't really think that there are that many people with 5D Mark III's do you?
In colloquial English millions means lots and lots. No one knows how may 5DIIIs will be sold, but you can bet it will be at least as many as 5DIIs

Um, "millions" can mean literal or figurative. I think in context you should of rather said "a lot" or "thousands" which is more specific and leaves less room for misunderstanding.

Where did you learn English?  ;D

England

I got a Masters in English at Oxford  :) now shooo
Oh really? Which college?

I love how this thread has taken on a better topic.

EDIT: Text found its way into quote.

Ha ha. Brilliant. I cannot speak for where from ramon123 hails, but I do find myself misunderstood by those not of the same British language learning as myself, who often take my words too seriously, ignoring the sarcasm or exaggerated nature and taking everything literally!

Well I'm in the US and I got what he meant without issue. In my part of the country it's a given to not take everything so ridiculously literally. I do remember this one kid from out of state who moved in and he would constantly stop people like every few sentences to correct well, come on, you don't literally mean that now, arrr, ridiculous, could never get the concept that not everything is 100% literal to the bone!

"tarnished the reputation of a fine camera"

reputation of a CAMERA???? what's with you people??
I do believe this was in reference to second-hand value, potentially reduced over a big fuss about a problem that is not symptomatic within the specifications of the device and has been evident on other models unnoticed for years.

Absolutely right - the 5D3 will now be tarnished as 'faulty', when in fact it is within specifications just that in an obscure situation the metering is slightly out (that could easily corrected in pp)

I'll offer $2500 to anyone for their 'faulty' 5D3.

Any sellers?

I didn't think so.

So much for the devaluation argument...

The offer still stands when they get them back, since they will be forever devalued and all.

You might think so from what I wrote but I'd have to say definitely no. Not one other thing about him even remotely hinted at that in any way whatsoever. (And I myself exaggerated a bit when I said constantly, although he would do it often enough.)
