Canon has posted an updated Service Notice today regarding the front rubber grips of some EOS 650Dunits produced in certain lots between 31 May and 27 June 2012.
This Service Notice replaces the Notice released on 6 July, which advised that there were no affected units sold through Authorised Resellers into the Australian market.Since the 6 July Service Notice, Canon has broadened the serial number range of potentially affected products as a precautionary measure and, as a result, the company believes that a small number of cameras in the extended range have been sold in the Australian market.
The updated Service Notice information can be found at http://www.canon.com.au/Support-Services/Support-News/Service-Notices/EOS-650D-DSLR-Camera. Information posted on this site can be used by owners of EOS 650D cameras to identify whether their camera falls within the extended serial number range and the support available. Canon advises users of EOS 650D cameras who have checked their camera serial number prior to 3 August 2012 to please repeat the process. Canon apologises for any inconvenience caused by this issue.
