Re: Did your unit have the light leak?

Yes, I was aware that it has been reported that the "white dot" solution has been spotted on some cameras alleged to have been fixed in China , but there has not been any announcement as of yet that I know of that this will also be the SOP in the USA, where I reside. Therefore, if I don't see a white dot, it makes no difference as of now, at least until and unless we hear differently later.

It might also be interesting if you would consider the main thrust of my reply, which could be crudely summarized as: get the 5D3 if you can, and "don't worry, be happy, shoot pictures."

Keep learning; share knowledge; think seriously about outcomes; seek wisdom.

That won't work. BGG already had a 5d3 and returned it due to the light leak.
