Black Speck in View Finder
Apr 5, 2014

Hi there!

Maybe someone here can help me. I purchased a 5D Mk III a little under one month ago, and I am still within the 30 day return period. I have recently noticed a black speck in the lower right hand corner of my viewfinder. The speck is not on the mirror, the eyepeice, or any lens. You may be wondering, "how do you know for sure?!"

Well, when there is no battery installed in the camera, the speck is not visible. However, when I install the battery, it instantly pops up! It is very much like the somewhat permanent lines on the small screen.

Anyone have any idea? If this is something like a defect in the camera. I would very much like to try and exchange it in my thirty day window.
