Have some interesting results here.

With mine lens CAP on and my EYEPIECE ON (meaning blacked out from both sides)
I can no difference from a flashlight AT ALL..

BUT when I turn the top LCD light on, I lose between 1 and 1/10 a stop.

When you are on AV, my shutter was 30 sec, with the top LCD light on it was 15-20.

BUT when I take the lens cap off and shoot at 1/30 sec, and turn the LCD light on, it does not move. I will test the 5DII next.. It effects you MORE if you are shooting in a VERY dark setting..
