Ugh! You're scaring me now! I will let you know how it is when it arrives tomorrow!

i had one of the first 1D3 available in the UK, I was #4 on the Park Cameras pre-order list.

Oh how I wish hadn't been!

That camera was swapped and to/from CPS many many times. Took four bodies and my lenses re-calibrating before I had a camera I was happy with.

Hopefully Canon has learnt its lesson, never had an problems with my second 1D3 or 1D4, but one never knows!

To cut a long story short, let others do the field testing and buy a 5D3 when the camera is known to be fault free. By then the price should also start dropping.

a fair bit of gear, a reasonable idea.
