    Hi

    It seems i’ve some kind of problem with my 50D.

    With the camera OFF, the CF access lamp flicks when IS on lenses is ON and I open the battery slot; if it’s OFF, nothing happens, i.e., the lamp doesn’t flick.

    This camera has some serious flaws. It applies way to much noise reduction, even in RAW. The files look like paintings. I even turned off noise reduction settings, both in camera and in the software. I returned mine to BHPhoto and bought a 40D………detail, oh glorious detail!! The 40D is the better of the two……by a mile!!

    “Just picked up the new 50D this week. I noticed faint dark circles through the viewfinder with and without lenses in place. Anyone else have the same problem?”

    Mine has the same problem. I don’t know if it is normal.

    Please, tell me if someone answer.
