Hi! Long time reader, first time poster!
So I visited Toronto last month and soon after I switched lenses I realized I could see black dots through my viewfinder. I'm using a 60D btw. The sensor is fine, but each time I look through the viewfinder there are black specks, and one of them is fairly big, so it bugs me. These specks are in clear focus, so from what I understand they are not on the mirror, nor on the focusing glass, but rather between the focusing glass and where I look into the viewfinder. From further inspection (and from what I can tell) they are immediately on the other side of the glass of the eyepiece of the viewfinder. I'm assuming I'd need to send my camera in to Canon to get it cleaned, since I refuse to open my camera up (I don't think I have warranty on my camera as I bought it used last year from a Canon employee in Mississauga and he never gave me a receipt or anything).
Living in Canada, I visited Henry's today, and after explaining my situation the guy working asked if he could take a look at my camera. I handed it over to him, he took a microfiber cloth, and then started rubbing on the mirror and the focus screen above it. I see a white-ish scar now when I look through the viewfinder, from what I'm assuming is damage done to the focus screen. Should I go back to Henry's and complain?
Anyway, some feedback would be nice! Oh, and can anybody tell me how much it'd be to send in a camera for cleaning? I've heard estimates from $60 to $200, and another problem is whether they'd be able to get it back to me on time, since I'm in need of it three weeks from now.
