MKIII AF - Instead of the SN, let's try this.
Sep 6, 2007

The MKIII carries a reference to the place and date of build in it, much like the code found on all Canon lenses.

You can check it by removing the battery and shining a flashlight inside the battery compartment. The code will be at the bottom of the compartment, printed in ink.

It will have 2 letters followed by 3 numbers and you can decode it referencing it to this page, which relates to Canon lenses but, it seems, can also be applied in this instance.

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Canon-Lenses/Canon-Lens-Aging.aspx

Then post back on this thread with the factory and build month as the title and expand on the problems, their solution or absence in the reply body.

Let's see if we can get a pattern out of this.

I'll start...
