Hello,

Has any one here got their 5D Mark II's yet? If so have you noticed the "black dot" in images of high contrast (e.g. something black next to something white or very bright)? It was mentioned in a UK "xxxxxxlabs" review. Wondered if they just didn't get a lemon.

Thanks.

Canon acknowledges the "black dot" issue and the "vertical banding"...
