All canon's I've owned, in fact all dslr's film or digital do this.

It's why on the 1d series cameras you have a eyepiece shutter lever that blocks the light in the viewfinder if you're not going to be looking through it.

And the 5d series cameras come with a rubber eyepiece cover to put over in place of the eye-cup to block light from the viewfinder.

about the 5d mark 3 rubber eyepiece do you mean that in the strap?
