"Does Canon honor the USA warraties if it's purchased from a non authorised dealer?
If I buy a new 5D MKIII from a non authorized dealer do I have a Canon 12 month warranty or not?"
Canon Forum Moderator "Naomi" responded:
As long as the EOS 5D Mark III was purchased New, In box, you should have the same warranty coverage. To help you out, we've included a link to the Service and Support page on our website for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera. Click "Warranty Terms" under "Service & Repair", and you'll find a link to the full camera warranty on this page.
Hope this helps!"
Note: We have no official documentation from Canon substantiating this moderator's claim that Canon will honor warranty repairs for purchases made from non-authorized dealers; however, there are numerous reports that Canon is relatively loose when interpreting its own warranty repair policies.
Update: According to a visitor to the site, the moderator's comment was deleted from the original thread (even though the reply still appears in search queries). Therefore, it's likely safe to assume Canon did not feel the moderator's comments represented its policies correctly. (Thanks Timothy)
"Canon has confirmed that, depending upon the shooting conditions, it may take slightly longer for the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1D X digital SLR cameras to acquire focus when using the Speedlite's AF Assist Beam, compared with that of the EOS 5D Mark II and EOS-1D Mark IV digital SLR cameras using the Speedlite's AF Assist Beam. We are developing a firmware update to enhance the focusing feature for the EOS 5D Mark III and the EOS-1D X. The schedule for release of this firmware update will be announced shortly."

"EF35mm f/2 IS USM lenses imported by Canon USA will not be supplied with lens hood or pouch, as confirmed by our sales group. If the dealers in question are offering the lens with these accessories in the box, it would most likely be a gray market item."
Robert P. Luckett, a Canon Public Relations Specialist, has confirmed this news for us:
"We have double checked and confirmed that Canon U.S.A. is not providing a soft carrying case, or lens hood with the 35mm F/2 IS lens."
While everyone is still not on the same page, we are going to go with Chuck and Rob on this one. Oh well...at least we are still getting center-pinch lens caps!
