  1. Of course the irony here is that as far as I can see the mk IV is still not shipping in Canada, and we already have a firmware update!

  2. Given the history of the mkIII, if canon wanted a QUIET
    fix there’s no way the cover story would be a focus improvement.

  3. Mine will be in hand on Friday, and I have very little or no interest in what Nikon is doing.
