Any focusing issues on the new 5D Mark 111?

It has been a toss up with me regarding the Canon 5D Mark 111 and the new Nikon D800E, until I read some horror stories coming out of the Nikon camp about Asymmetric focusing issues, and according to a report from, it is a definite problem

Nikon D800/800E focusing issue

Apparently there are more than just a few that have this issue. Great isn't it. You pay thousands of dollars for a camera and get hit with this. That has certainly soured the milk for me. So, any similar issues with the Canon counterpart? Man, I sure hope not. I haven't ready about any as yet, but that doesn't mean there isn't any. What's the verdict here guys?
