An analysis of EOS-1D Mark III autofocus performance - Continued
March 5, 2008: Canon makes brief statement on EOS-1D Mark III autofocus
Canon USA this morning has updated the EOS-1D Mark III sub-mirror fix service notice with a statement indicating that the camera's autofocus performs better in Canon tests than all previous EOS cameras:
March 5, 2008
Updated Information
After the AF mirror Adjustment, including the updated firmware version 1.1.3, the EOS-1D Mark III AF function performed better in our tests than all previous EOS camera models.

Canon strives at all times to continuously improve our products in order to provide our customers with the best performance and value.

We are aware that some customers have raised questions about the performance of the EOS-1D Mark III AF system under certain conditions.  We will continue to investigate, and look for opportunities to improve, the performance of the AF system to ensure the satisfaction of all of our customers

The reasons for Canon posting such a statement can only be guessed at, but one possible interpretation is that the company is trying to buy itself some time to complete the development of the fix that Canon USA pro reps began discussing at the beginning of February.
Canon Australia has added the same statement to its service notice for the sub-mirror fix.
