New 5D III - Has anyone seen this?
Feb 23, 2013

I received a new 5D Mark III on Tuesday. Today was my second shoot. After the shoot, I was walking to my car as a flock of geese flew over. Just for kicks I pointed the camera to the sky and rattled off six shots, panning with the geese. It was a half hearted attempt to see how quickly the camera would lock focus and track.

When I loaded up my pictures I noticed that the pictures of the geese had a light vertical bar about 3/4's of the way across the page. This appeared in the exact same spot on all six images and remember I was panning, so if it was flare it should have moved.

The pictures from the shoot all look fine, but I suspect this bar is there as well. It may just be undetectable, since it's so subtle.

Of course my concern is that this is an electronic or sensor defect. I would hate to sit on this and one day have it start getting worse.

As I asked originally, has anyone here seen anything like this in their pictures?


See light vertical band between the red arrows.
