Has 1ds III viewfinder-sensor alignment problem ???

My 1ds III has an alignment problem. (serial is 60XXXX)

Result images from my 1ds III are tilted about 1 deg clockwise.

1 degree !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that this discrepancy may be due to ccw skewness of viewfinder (or penta prism).

If you use the Liveview mode with grids, you will check it easily.

Surely, a tripod will be necessary, and telephoto lenses (more than 50mm) are
recommended because of distortion.

My 1ds III still shows skewness between a sight through viewfinder and an image on LCD(liveview).

If I must fix every skewed image, 100% viewfinder coverage of 1ds III will lost it's value to me.
