I spoke with Canon Canada and they’ve instructed me to send the camera to the service centre in Mississauga.

Canon has announced a new AF fix for the EOS-1D Mark III and EOS-1Ds Mark III. This is in addition to the sub mirror fix issued earlier by Canon, and requires returning the camera to Canon for service. New firmware for the 1D Mark III and 1Ds Mark III has also been released to fix issues with live view, USB communication, and to update camera error codes. This brings the versions up to 1.2.5 and 1.1.4 respectively, and is available for download now.

  1. >the people who’s saying that canon have to release the new 1D are just waiting for the price drop of MKIII, i 100% bet that they will not buy the MKIV when it came out

    I 100% take that bet … and will 100% take your money. I for one am waiting for the 1D4 for two reasons (1) the retail chain is depleted and the stock available may be of dubious vintage, and (2) after the time it’s taken for Canon to iron out the issues with the 1D3, we’re so close to the 1D4 as to make a little longer wait almost a no-brainer.

  2. I vote PS. That image shows the min. distace to be 1.5m where the 135L has 0.9m … I doubt that would change.

    That and it looks fake
