Canon will fix light-leaked 5DMk3 units for free

Canon has issued a new update on the Canon 5D Mark III issue, identifying the serial numbers of cameras affected by this issue, and promising to fix them free of change. At the same time they have issued firmware update 1.1.2 that fixes bugs and adds support for the GP-E2 GPS gadget.

Details at Northlight Images and British Journal of Photography and dpreview Canon forum and Photography Blog, et al.

Needless to say this is a hot topic in Canon-themed forums, here is a sampling of the dpreview Canon forums. One of the threads there takes a more practically-forward-looking approach: what is the impact of the light leak on the resale value of the camera?
