Given that Canon built in viewfinder shutters in the past, why such a crappy solution in such expensive a camera (I can understand for lesser models) is there a practical reason why a built in blind is no longer possible? Just wondering
No, it's just that the 5-series is in that 'lesser models' category in this case. My 1D X, like previous 1-series bodies, has a built-in, lever-activated VF shutter.
Ah that makes sense, didn't know that, makes sense on 1D series though. Don't think any 5D never mind the 5D3 deserves the 'lesser' status (my words) but understandable cheers
