5D Mk II - Focus points problem?
Nov 20, 2011

Received my 5D Mark II and noticed a couple of things about the focus points in the viewfinder -

(1) Even when only center point is selected, the other points seem to flash faint red when focusing - not bright red, but almost like they are 'shaded out'

(2) When the top focus point is activated or selected, there is a solid circle of red light directly above it, not associated with any of the focus points - not lens specific, as I have tried a couple of lenses

Has anyone else experienced this? Also, I purchased the kit and got a great copy of the 24-105L, so am hesitant to exchange the whole kit if there is a problem - better to send to Canon to remedy?

Any thoughts much appreciated! Thanks
