Canon's expensive, uncalibrated AF points

The company issued a service note today about occasional uncalibrated, off-center AF points in its high-end dSLRs.

Did you spend many thousands of dollars on an EOS 1D-whatever Mark III only to find your off-center AF more auto than focus? Well, it's not your imagination. Canon issued a service announcement indicating " If an AF point other than the center AF point is used, focus may become soft. " Ooops. On the bright side, the company is offering free accuracy checks and AF adjustments for those affected. All will be well.
