well the difference could be I was shooting without a battery grip and the threadstarter in that 5D3 thread was.

Exactly the same thing happened in my 7D.  Shot with a battery grip, led to the replacement of the entire shutter mechanism that among others could have been caused by splash of sea water, good thing Canon covered it under warranty.

Did not use battery grip since then under testy weather.
