Got my 5diii, everything seems to need micro-adjustment

I'm just checking if you all think this is normal.

I got the 5Diii yesterday, and I find that almost every lens is needs +10 then it did on my 5Dii.

It doesn't worry me because I have the micro adjustment, but I'm curious if this seems normal.

On my mk2 most lenses were needing about 0 to -7, with my 70-200ii needing the most at -11.

Now on the mk3 most lenses dialed in around +3 to +10, with the 70-200ii now needing +0.

It feels like everything is seeming sharp now, and I think this is why I like cameras with AF adjustment and good consistent lenses, but I was surprised how different from my mk2 it was.

Just checking if this is anything to consider sending the camera back or if this seems normal (heck it could be that the mk2 was off by a fair amount on most).
