I have been taking some HDR photos and noticed (at times) the shutter will hang closed on the last shot.  As I am taking shots is seems the last shot lags longer and longer.

I returned my first 5D for the same problem and have less than 200 shots on the new one and after about 20 HDR shots it started hanging.  The shots turn out fine.

I am using an SD card so after the shots it takes a few moments to process and write to the card, not sure if this is the cause or not.

Is anyone else having this issue?

It doesn't have to do witg the card. It's the in camera processing that produces that delay

Newbies can buy 5DM3's too, just like 16 year olds given brand new BMWs by their parents when they get their license. Probably not the most ideal way to go, but its their money and time they're expending.
WOW! It is kinda rude to compare someone buying 5D MK III, with 16 year old's getting a brand new BMW from their parents. The guy must have bought it with his hard earned money and has a genuine question ... Show some respect!
Just because someone has question about how shutter works in HDR mode does NOT make a person "newbie" .. for all that you know he could a very accomplished photographer but  he may have never bothered with HDR, so he has a genuine question.
How can you or I judge what is the "ideal way to go" for someone else?

Like this thread, just like kids, and maybe the next one who leave this forum;
But hopefully not, I´m also not a professional photomen ;-) and i know much about these, people because of my old business (selling cam´s in an big european electronic shop) "it´s just knew and it does´s it different than my old one is it maybe defect?" or from olympus: "She(dslr) is great in daylight but at night with flash everyone is dark. DO YOU HAVE TRIED TO CHANGE THE FLASH IN THE MENU?? No can i do this?"

So what I mean is, we live in a fast changing world and NO ONE has the time to chill when buying something new, to read the manual; and this is the result. I know it buy myself, maybe you too

It is pretty presumptuous to suggest that he has not read the manual ... but even if he read the manual,  he would have not got the answer to his question. I just went through the HDR section of 5D MK III manual and there is nothing there that can answer his question (except for a nebulous reference to shutter speed in the third point of page 176 of the manual in HDR section).
There are plenty of occasions when the situation we face is not addressed in the manual ... those are things you learn as you make more photos & mistakes or when we ask others who might be familiar with those situations. That is where forums like Canon Rumors come in handy.
I know several good photographers who are into landscape photography but know very little about portrait work, but they won't get all the technicalities required for portrait work in the camera manual. So it is perfectly logical to approach forums like these where help is available.
Let us be more kind to help or provide constructive criticism rather than assume people are lazy to read camera manuals.

This hasn't got anything to do with hdr, it has to do with the basics of how the camera handles light.

I agree ... but sometimes people don't put two and two together ... sounds basic but these things do happen.

yes you´re absolutely right, but like you say, putting two and two together, that was that what I Meant

ad manual: I don´t have a 5D3 nor a Manual what i want to say was that there are always people who asks question like these,

And myself too,

and when myself has such a question, and  read something like "why he´s buying such a cam if he have no Idea bout this and that", this scare me. And I would leave the forum sooner than later and I think it´s not the sense here or am I wrong

My main question is what did you tell canon when you returned your first one, and how did they respond?

As I know from here in Austria, Canon is in such cases very moderate. And I think the higher the Product the more moderate they get,

I´ve once had an issue with my 400D. The lens mounted to the Camera was very hard, called canon send them the product, asked how long it take? The one on the otherside says about 14 days, which I denied because i needed 5 Workdays later, than he said one moment please, 1 minute later he said: Sir I can offer you 10days so i said ok and i got it really back 9 days later

One does not have to know everything about a camera to purchase that camera ... and nothing wrong if someone uses this forum to ask only 1 simple question and then leave.

Look at Peter Read Miller.  He still uses the center AF point.  Do you think he uses in-cam HDR?  Of course then again, that's why he's on the NFL sidelines, and you're on here being, well, yeah.

Viggo; I find that things get very obvious once I know about them :-)

For someone who does not know how AEB works (but does know how Basics of the Camera) could surmize the following:

1) Camera varies the EV values electronically.
2) Camera varies the Aperture
3) Camera varies the ISO
4) Camera varies the Shutter speed.

Granted, all have their advantages and disadvantages, in some situtions, I'd rather not vary the shutter speed but vary the ISO instead... but thats the way it is.
