Speed, (or others), any word back from Canon on the erratic/dimmed blinking of the focus points? You mentioned you sent them an email, and I am experiencing the same thing. Also, anyone else experiencing this phenomenon?
Not yet, I'll message them again soon. At the moment for some reason I can't send a message via their support page.
Edit: I rang them because their support site is down.
Their response was for me to send my camera in to them which is not currently an option for me.
Everything else appears to be working fine so I'll just turn off the red indicator for the moment & hopefully enough other people will complain to them so that they'll look to resolve the issue in their next firmware release.
If not I can probably send my camera in to them in January.
