Re: My New 1DX Has Black Spots.

Just to add another data point to the discussion, I got a new 1DX last week.  I have shot with it twice so far only for 3hrs total.  I already have one of these black spots in my viewfinder, upper area just a bit right of the midline.  It is fairly defined so it must be in the VF assembly somewhere.  My 1DX is from Canadian dealer and has the #8 in the 6th spot so past the recall.  I don't see any marks in the battery compartment but I would assume that they wouldn't be marking the newer ones once they were out of the affected serial number range.

Not sure if I should be worried, I will see if I get more in the coming weeks of shooting.  I know my 1D4 collects all kind of crap in the VF.  My 5D3 and 7D don't seem to collect much.
