MK III Weekly bad copy report July17th

Anyone taken delivery of a MK III in the past 7 days? Good or bad? Please quote serial numbers as well if possible. Supply seems to have dried up, - I used the official 'recommended retailer' as advised by Phil here at DP review and the search revealed .......nothing!
C'mon Amazon, join the 'bad copy' train...........

Got mine 10 days ago after 7 days in shipping and it was #522xxx. There is quite a range on the #'s.

I got mine on 7/13 (yikes) I'm still getting used to it, but so far only a few shots were unacceptable (to me, anyway) SN 523xxx

Well based on this small sample so far, the bad copy flow seems to have dried up.

Got mine at the weekend. Serial number 525* (in the UK). Have not had a chance to do a thorough test. Need to adjust my lenses, but first impressions are good.

Just taken delivery of the first of two odrered from T4 cameras in UK along with 16-35 Mk 2, 24-70, 70-200 IS and two 580 Mk 2 Speedlights.

Haven't has a chance to really try it out yet. As a previous 25 yr.+ Nikon user, I'm sure I'm in for a steap learning curve.

9 delivered 1 one bad

That is 9 delivered but only one definite bad copy with Err 99. The volume of bodies arriving seems to have defintely slowed.
