Canon to address 1D Mark III autofocus in August

The leading digital SLR maker could answer worries about autofocus issues raised last month with its new high-end EOS-1D Mark III camera.

Chuck Westfall, Canon's spokesman and all-knowing camera tech expert, has promised to address questions about how well his employer's new high-end EOS-1D Mark III digital SLR handles autofocus--but you'll have to wait until next month.

In June, photographer and consultant Rob Galbraith raised concerns about the new $4,500 camera's autofocus abilities on his blog, but Canon has remained mum about the issue.

Westfall could provide a response in August, though, in a monthly column he writes for a photojournalism publication, The Digital Journalist.

"I'll have more on EOS-1D Mark III autofocusing in the next edition of Tech Tips," Westfall said in the July issue.
