NIKON D7100 Viewfinder light leak!
Mar 26, 2013

Hi,

I received my D7100 on Thursday, purchased in Amazon. Going out for the 1st test shots I noticed a pink stripe crossing the frame on long exposure shots.. 2 of the pics even show dust on the sensor. These are within the 1st 50 pics taken with the camera. I have uploaded the pics.

This camera is going back to the seller tomorrow. I don't think this is something I should expect from a brand new camera. Please test your copies for viewfinder leaks. I posted 2 more pics taken with the lens caps on and pointing a small flashlight into the view finder for a few secs.

This didn't happen when I do exactly the same test to my D300.

Should I expect the same problem to happen in all copies?

Best
