Canon USA has issued an EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera product advisory.
 
To Users of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera
 
Thank you for using Canon products.
 
Concerning the EOS 5D Mark III digital SLR camera, when the LCD panel illuminates in extremely dark environments, the displayed exposure value may change. Canon has concluded the investigation of this phenomenon, and this announcement informs you of our findings as described below.
 
Phenomenon
 
In extremely dark environments, if the LCD panel illuminates, the displayed exposure value may change. However, based on the results of extensive testing this change in exposure value will not noticeably affect the captured image.
 
Affected Product

*Products whose sixth digit in the serial number is 1 or 2 are affected.
 
For example, “xxxxx1xxxxxx” or “xxxxx2xxxxxx” ([x] represents any optional number.)
 
Support
 
Under almost all shooting conditions (including dark environments) this phenomenon will not affect your captured images. However, if you would like Canon to inspect your camera, we will provide this service free of charge upon request beginning in mid-May. Please contact Canon using the information below to request service.

To help promote their April 2012 free Pro Speed Belt ($39.75 value) with the purchase of a Think Tank Photo StreetWalker Pro, Think Tank Photo sent me a StreetWalker Pro to review.
 
Not surprisingly (I love most Think Tank Photo gear), I love the case.
 
Here is a quick Think Tank Photo StreetWalker Pro Review.
