I've never had any creakiness on the CF door of mine. Can you describe the creakiness? Is it only when you open/close the door? Or is it when operating the camera?

What I noticed (as have many others) is a creakyness when you squeeze the grip. There is sort of a mushy feel to it. It has also been noticed by some around the battery door.

I did a quick google on 5Dii creaky CF door and turned up several like this one:


Mine definitely doesn't have a battery door creaky sound. When I did a face plant on the street with it, the camera basically landed on the battery door. I filed off just enough of the door to allow it to have a firm closure. I don't recall it being a problem before that either.
