that there are still some people mention the cap-on thing even after Canon's acknowledgment, and even after canon holding all old cameras and only resume selling new 'fixed' versions. From what planet they are?

I can understand they were stuck with their camera's which they cannot return and are reluctant to open it by Canon for a fix. But they should not misinform others who still have the chance to correct their situation and get a fixed body.

As I suggested earlier, anybody getting an old version now SHOULD return it.

I wouldn't worry. Just don't shoot with the lens cap on with the LCD illuminated at the same time  ;D

My 1st 5dm3 has a "1" in the serial number and my 2nd has a "3"... They both perform the same...not unless im taking pictures of the back of a lens cap can I tell which is which... Other then that theyre both perfectly fine.

I just received my 5diii last night from a small vendor. It is the last one in stock from the first wave of shipping before Canon's holding due to light leak issue. I thought it's 6th digit serial number must have been "1" or "2" and it was OK because I couldn't wait and never took pics in extreme dark situation.  I placed order with assuming of #"1".
But finally it's "3". What can we tell here? #"3" doesnt mean new stock and #"1" or #"2" dont mean old stock either.
So before returning, you should re-think if you would use it in extreme dark situation. If you would, then whether the 5diii is from the stock shipped before or after Canon's holding.
Cheers
