"What do Smokey Robinson, Copernicus and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) have in common? Other than just the right mix of science and creativity…they all share a February 19th birthday. ACR fits right in with this group of right and left-brained all-stars. Astrologists say that those born on February 19 have, 'the ability to put ideas into form,' and are, 'born builders.' Also on this date, the stars aligned for Thomas Edison to patent the first phonograph, for Cracker Jack to insert the first prize into a box and Stevie Wonder’s 'Songs in the Key of Life' to win a Grammy for album of the year. Coincidence? Probably not."

, we highlighted a Canon Forums moderator's response
acknowledging the Canon EOS-1D X and 5D Mark III cameras were slow to acquire focus when using a Speedlite's AF Assist Beam. Now, Canon has published an official product advisory regarding the issue:
Thank you for using Canon products. Affected Products
EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera
EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera Details
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 solution to enhance the focusing feature for the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1D X and plan to release a firmware update based on following estimated schedule:
- EOS 5D Mark III: (estimated) Late April, 2013
- EOS-1D X: (estimated) Late May, 2013
