EOS-1D X/1D C lubrication issue

Due to inconsistency in the amount of lubrication which has been applied to the driving mechanism of some EOS-1D X and 1D C cameras, Canon has identified a phenomenon in which a small number of the affected products may over time, develop the following symptoms:
- AF searches but does not lock in on the subject (caused by minute particles produced by wear due to the inconsistent lubrication mentioned above)
- The image shown in the viewfinder is 'blurry' or 'not steady'(occurs if wear progresses.
