5D III off color


Purchased 2 5D III's and 1D X recently.  The color on 5D III's leans to the green side.  I have all settings in Adobe Camera Raw set the same for all cameras.  Images are shot in RAW and on custom white balance in studio light on a target.  I am using a color balanced monitor as well.  I have 1D IV, 1D III, 1Ds III and 7D that do not have this shift to the green.  I set the 5D III's to a +2 Magenta to compensate for the green and it does help in a properly exposed image.  If an image is under exposed and pushed in ACR it will go even more green.  I have samples taken in studio lighting with the same 24 70 2.8 L II lens and ISO 200 at f9 and f20 to produce underexposure.  The link is here and the images are labeled.


Any help would be appreciated.




I haven't seen this problem at all...there is something wrong with that body
