Annoying red/orange reflection in 5D3 viewfinder!
Dec 23, 2012

I wear glasses when using my 5D3. There is an annoying red/orange reflection in the left/top portion of the viewfinder. I discovered that for whatever reason, even small amounts of light from behind me, even indoors, causes the red/orange light to be highly visible in the viewfinder.

I have worn glasses using dozens of other cameras and never had this reflection. When I move my eye away from the viewfinder, I can clearly see the front glass of the viewfinder is the same color as the color I see while looking into the viewfinder. Does anyone else have this reflection issue? Thanks.
