5DIII light leak confirmed by Canon

Well, I guess that settles it:

Phenomenon

In extremely dark environments, if the LCD panel illuminates, the displayed exposure value may change as a result of the AE sensor’s detection of light from the LCD panel.

Affected Product *

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera

*If your $3500 copy doesn't have it, you are likely not using a genuine Canon 5DIII (:grin:).

Kudos to Canon, though, for acknowledging the issue so fast.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III
