Canon pulling the EOS-1D Mark III from shelves?

It looks like Canon is pulling all EOS-1D Mark III units from shelves in response to the autofocus issue plaguing their professional DSLR. In what appears to be a legitimate letter sent to dealers on October 25th, Canon states that they have "decided to stop shipment of all EOS-1D Mark III. We would therefore like to collect all unsold EOS-1D Mark III units from your stock." A shipping recommencement date is promised at a later time. That's a bold move by Canon since the issue only affects some of the units sold so far. Still, with a customer-focused action like that Canon, you've got our loyalties nailed.
