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.

I went through the SAME thing with a brand new 8.  They are ALL defective!

As some point your 1DX will no longer focus.

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.
