I have yet to see an image where this supposed issue affected it, have you?
Plenty of videos on YouTube showing the problem when shooting at night, and auto-metering with the LCD backlight on...
Maybe you don't do a lot of night shooting - but the problem is certainly very real. Canon wouldn't offer a fix if it wasn't.
This video makes it crystal clear that the “it’s-only-with-the-lens-cap-on” crowd is full of sh**.
....And yet, they keep repeating the same line, as if saying it more and more will make it true.
Actually, no need for any videos to proof that there is a serious issue. The fact that Canon reacted by holding all stock, issuing the first statement, then the second where they list affected bodies, then offering a FIX,.. I am tired already,.... still all this is not enough for some who still invade those threads with their stupid statement, which they think is funny; "I don't take photos with the cap on" they just drive me nuts!!!
