Ok, I'm interested in the "Image Circle Reflected onto Sensor" which the arch leading into the sensor is perhaps what I'm viewing in my images but why does it show the left side doing that and not all sides and if you could please explain the 4th diagram.

I'll try the eye piece cover in just a bit.

I think there's something reflective on one side of the mirror box but not the other. A portion of the image circle projected by the lens onto that side of the mirror box is being reflected onto the image sensor.

I posted these photos on "dpreview" and a Canon tech was pretty sure the problem looks like a busted shutter or a shutter on it's way out. I sent my camera off to Canon in Toronto 3 days ago. They should have received it today....now I wait to hear.

Got my camera back today and it only took Canon 1 week to fix it! Thanks for fixing this problem so fast!!

They ended up replacing the shutter assembly.

i find their repair time is inversely related to the cost of the camera.

i sent my 20d in once, took about 3 weeks. my mom sent back a point and shoot, took like 3 months.
