5D Mark III quick control dial not responding occasionally

5D III sales started 3 days ago in my area, i have got it for two days and found a problem.

Sometimes when I play back the photos I took, the quick control dial on the back of the camera body will stop responding (meaning I could not browse to the previous/next photo) after I use zoom function (using magnification button and the main dial next to the shutter).

It doesnt seem to be a hardware issue since I can press play back button twice to exit and start playback function again, and then the dial will work just fine.

And it never happened if I simply browse through pictures without zooming in. and it has no problem performing other tasks so far (adjusting in M mode, selecting focus point etc.) It doesn't happen every time I use zoom function, it happens rather randomly.

has anyone encountered the same issue? hopefully it's a firmware problem and going to be corrected soon.
