Glad to hear you got the new unit!

Have you tried the wireless upload to your computer yet and if so how do you like it? Is it posible to upload to a laptop nearby as you shoot or is that a feature that needs to work which doesn't allow you shoot at the same time?

Also, how is the single shot silent mode?

Spy,

Haven't tried either feature. Right now I don't have a need for wireless upload - so I wasn't about to invest several hundred $$$ in the transmitter. Silent shot also isn't a feature I have a particular need for.

Hello JohnG,

I guess you know about the firmware upgrade file for the 1DM3. Let us know how the fixes worked when you install it next month. As this firmware patch won't be available till the end of this month.

Have a good week.

So farpeople whohave taken to a service center to have it installedare saying it helps the LCD issue but not the focus issues.

Hello JohnG,

Didn't know Canon is already making that fix available already. Interesting.

Any how at $5800.00 CAD it's a lot more than I plan to spend on my first DSLR. I'll keep waiting for the 40D and see what it brings to the table. Will it be worth considering...

Enjoy your 1DM3!!
