Mine seems ok, use different focus points other than the centre most of the time and not had a problem with sharpness, so fingers crossed mine is unaffected.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

I've received an email from CPS regarding the issue but I'm going to wait and see what the feedback is from those that send their cameras in first.

To be honest I haven't noticed any problems with mine......any out of focus/soft shots I get I always put down to user error

Turnaround appears to be pretty quick......within 7 days some even sooner.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

Well, I've registered it, so waiting to see when it will be collected. I've got a couple of big races in the middle of April, so need to work around them. Although I think it's ok, I do get some OOF shots, that are probably my error, but if they clean the sensor etc as well, it may as well go in.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

I had an email on Friday asking for a suitable date to pick mine up. The email said they aim for a 3 day turn around.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

Good luck, not heard yet, but downloaded the pdf handbook and played with a few settings on Saturday and they were all good. I will have to discuss it with them on the phone as I really need the camera during April.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

Just had an email. Date is 26th or the next 3/4 working days, so think I am going for Monday 30th, which should mean, fingers crossed that it is back by the Friday. I've got a race this weekend and one the next, but can use the backup 20D.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

We'll have to compare notes when they come back. I've not got micro adjustments on any of my lenses, so that will be something to look at when it comes back.

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

I emailed Lauren back at Canon as I too have not had to microadjust any of my lenses and I don't really want to start now.

She replied that if no + - had been done before then any AF adjustment would not alter anything with my lenses.......she then went out to say if I did notice any softness "we will be more than happy to calibrate the lens(es) to the body free of charge for you".

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

That sounds good. I had the 1st email from Lauren and now she's on holiday from another girl called April. she's told me to make sure I put in that I need it back for the following weekend for a cycle event and they will get it sorted. Very helpful

Re: Canon 1DMKIII & MKIIIs AF Problem

Well, mine has reached Canon and they are going to try to get it back to me on Friday as I've got another race on Saturday, so fingers crossed he comes back all clean, shiny and focusing perfectly. I miss it already and it only went yesterday.
