Canon USA to commence EOS-1D Mark III sub-mirror fix program on December 3
On December 3, Canon USA will begin accepting EOS-1D Mark IIIs that are eligible for the sub-mirror fix, the company has announced this evening. Canon will cover the cost of receiving the camera and returning it after the repair is complete, plus the cost of the repair itself. They have also established a dedicated facility within Canon Virginia and will be performing sub-mirror repairs there for the foreseeable future.

Canon Singapore has yet to receive any feedback/instruction from Canon Japan to carry out any necessary action to the customers using Canon 1D MK III.
Canon US and Canon Japan are separate plants. Most of Sg's shipment batch of 1D MK III is from Japan. So those who are still holding on to the 1D MK III affected by the sub-mirror fix will have to wait again for confirmation from Canon Japan.
