Re: 5D Mk III weird shutter release

It behaves the same way. Once it releases on the 3rd time, another time even on the 6th. Interesting is, that the first half-press wakes the camera up and the upper display shows e.g. the F number. If I try to press the shutter button fully now,nothing happens. But if I wait for 1-2 s and half press the shutter button again, the upper display shows not only F number, but also exposure time and the shutter is released max. on 2nd time. Camera reset didn't help. I don't understand...
