I need to try the 28-70 kit lens with nd filter but I'm away right now.

What surprises me is the sharp edge at the bottom, fading a bit towards the top of the frame. Seems like something is going on close to the sensor rather than in front of the lens.

Boy are you smart! YOU are right! That's a shadow of something blocking light to the sensor.

Why, it even LOOKS like a shutter!

Now that I think about it, I once had a camera with a Copal square shutter (look it up) that hung on one side for a few milliseconds before it broke free and completed closing. This looks like a similar phenomenon.

It's definitely not the shutter... I can see the dark bar on the lcd BEFORE I press the shutter button
