It's official: an EOS-1D Mark III autofocus fix is on the way
Thursday, October 18, 2007 | by Rob Galbraith
Beginning October 17 in the U.S. and presumably other regions as well, Canon began informing EOS-1D Mark III owners that a fix for the camera's AI Servo autofocus problems has been developed. Chuck Westfall, Canon USA's Director of Media and Customer Relationship, says that Canon USA staff at their factory service centres, call centre as well as pro market field representatives have been briefed on the fix and are able to speak about it to EOS-1D Mark III shooters.
We spoke with Westfall this morning about what customers are being told regarding the fix. What we've learned has been rolled into an update to our June 19 article analysing EOS-1D Mark III autofocus performance.
