Canon 1DMkIII pulled from dealer shelves

->> This PDF has surfaced on the net and appears to be legitimate: http://www.fjphotography.com/pdf/EOS1DMARKIII.pdf

It seems that Canon has no way of identifying the problem cameras, so any that have already shipped may be affected. Anyone owning/using a MkIII might be advised to send their camera in for sub-mirror assembly replacement, even if it *seems* to be focusing ok.

The 40D focus issues that have more recently been documented also appear to be legitimate. Not good.

->> Michael,
I was told by a Canon technician to be certain you only purchase the new shipments, delivered after October 24.

->> Don't know about looking legitimate but the signature alone is experiencing some typos or spelling errors. For example the intended word "RETAIL" is "Retai" in the letter.

->> I bought a 40D and shot a basketball game with it and was happy with most of the images. Tried some shots outdoors of wildlife and all the images seem to be real soft and out of focus. This camera should have been from new stock since B & H was out of stock until recently. I called them and they issued rma and I sent it back today for exchange. I tried raw and jpg with the same results.
