Updated EOS 5D Mark III User&Owner Manual

Looks like there is an updated version of the EOS 5D Mark III user manual (according to this forum post). Not yet clear what changed from the first version of the user guide. The PDF of the manual can be downloaded here. If someone knows what’s the difference with the previous one please let me know.
