5d mkiii Mirror Lockup issue?

Hi everyone,

I just got a Canon 5d mkiii and set the camera to shoot at multiple exposures with mirror lockup enabled, but it seems the camera only takes the first shot.

After pressing the shutter button the camera captures the first image, shows it on the preview screen, and then the screen goes black. On the top info screen I see the exposure brackets and mirror lockup icon blinking for a couple of seconds, after which that screen turns off and nothing more happens.

Do you have any advice as to what the issue might be or if I might be doing something wrong here?

This is how I've set it up:
- Mirror Lockup enabled
- ISO 100
- 3 Exposures: -1, 0, +1
- Camera on tripod
- 10 second self-timer
- 70-200mm and 16-35mm lenses

Shooting multiple exposures with mirror lockup turned off, however, works fine.

Thanks for your comments
