Confirmed on my 6D.

Not too concerned.  It's more of a minor annoyance.

Now that 604FF pointed it out I'm going to notice it every time though  ;)

It's the curse of the 5D2 sequel.  :o

Looks to me like it is just an internal reflection, as such it shouldn't show on the image. Annoying but not a matter of concern.

I never really noticed anything for the short while I had a 6D but I immediately noticed this 5D3 flashes a dim red in the entire viewfinder from the reflections when it confirms in low light. Kinda pointless to make an issue out of it since it doesn't affect anything picture wise.

Ditto.  I noticed it too but since I mostly use the center AF point, I'll never see it.  Not a concern for me.

If it totally ruins your day, dissassemble the camera and get some black tape or black spray paint and experiment with masking part of the pentaprism until you block the reflection.  Let us all know how it goes.
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

This actually bugs me more than the 6D reflection since it is infinitely more distracting, there's no way to work around it and still have the red AF pt confirmation flash.  Annoying but not the end of the world.  I just can't stop thinking the same thing every time I AF the 5D3... all previous older tech cameras didn't do this but now a newest high tech $3K body does.  Cue the slight disappointment each time.  Waaah.  Good thing I like cheese to go with my whine.   :P

Wouldn't you be able to fix this by putting in a different focusing screen?

Mine does this too.  It doesn't affect anything though, so it doesn't bother me.

Canon 6D Lightleak?
« Reply #24 on: February 03, 2013, 03:32:34 PM »
When the top center autofocus point on my 6D is lit up I have a red dot directly above that focus point. It's 2-3 times as large as the rectangular autofocus point.

Does anyone else have this?

Is this a light leak issue? As far as I can tell the camera is exposing properly, at least it's not wildly off and Canon claims they haven't heard of this yet.

Thanks!

That is how it looks on my 350D.
You can see the spot of every LED-lighting up the Focus screen.
Normally you will just see the engraved dots on the FS been lit.

7D it seams like there is just one lighting for all the points.

In AF select mode center point and all inner point marks in bright red

( the grid lines and all other markings are also visible in light red )

What I want to know is when Canon will start to properly support the needs of its most critical photographers: those who specialize in unfocussed low-light extreme macro shots of the back sides of lens caps. Clearly, this is a market segment that simply will not go ignored!

I donĀ“t want support. I just wanted to show that in the dark my 350D also shows this, but why should I use the 350 for low light, so it is not that important. I am able to see it up to a quit bright light level but it is not really a "Problem"
I just see this Tread checked my cameras and noticed it ;)

And for the 7D I see those other markings in my 15s ISO100 F1:2,8 shot and wanted to share it ;)
( I never really noticed it before on the 7D. Most of the time it is just a short red flash )
