When my Canon 1D-Mark III’s AF hits its target the results are awesome, BUT that seems to be about 65% of the time which negates any benefit in performance you get from this crazy expensive camera. Canon today finally admitted that they have figured out the AF issues (of course we’ve heard that before) and issued a new firmware update to address the issue.
Canon has also created a new web site just for the Canon 1D-Mark III autofocus.
DPReview.com reports that Canon will be working with owners and local stores to ensure that AF issues are addressed in all 1D-Mark III and 1Ds-Mark III bodies.
Let’s pray that Canon fixes this because this is a great camera that has been marred by a senseless bug!
