I'm wondering if the 5D mk II failures might be related to a particular batch.
Our two cameras have serial numbers 2 apart (320105762 and 320105764) and we received them in mid December.
Could those of you on the trip send me (post or PM) your serial numbers (or range e.g. 320105XXX) along with whether you had problems or not?
My 5D MII failed and its serial no. is 0320106486 so the common part so far is 032010xxxx on 4 of the 6 failures.
