December 19, 2008 -- Canon has published a statement today concerning the 'black dot' phenomenon that has plagued some EOS 5D Mark II owner's. In the statement, Canon confirms that they are working on ways to improve and/or mitigate the phenomena and offers settings that can help reduce the problem.
Note: It does not appear that the 'black dot' issue affects everyone, as we have not been able to duplicate it on our review unit.
