D5100 Flaw?
Jan 28, 2013

Hi Everybody,

I bought a D5100 last month, but returned it because there was light reflecting off the inside/bottom edge of the viewfinder. You could see a little strip of light if you held it away from your eye, and it would go out of focus and look like a little ball of light in the viewfinder. It was generally in the black space below the field of view, between the led display. The second d5100 I exchanged it for, has little balls of light above and below, and a little on the left side. The display unit at the store exhibited none of this. It doesn't affect shots, but it is annoying. Anybody see this? Am I being too picky?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
