There is a HUGE deference between 5D III lens cap photo problem and a camera locking up when you are engage in a picture taking activity with the D4 and D800.

The 5D III light issue will not be a problem if you take pictures with the lens cap off, so you would have no reason for the tap. But a few people need to take pictures with the lens cap on!

It's not an issue to be taken lightly, but you obviously missed the news on the front page. There is a temporary workaround by disabling one of the camera playback settings (Highlights and RGB Histogram).

So this is a firmware issue and not a hardware problem like a light leak, etc.
