Five weeks ago, I got my new camera, a Canon 40 D. This weekend, I discovered there was dust and something looking like a curly hair on the viewfinder. This morning, I went back to the store where I bought it and their reaction was rather unsatisfying :mad: They told me this was normal and that they can send the camera back to Canon but that it will take ages to have it back. I should just learn to live with it. I told them that one of the reasons I choose the 40 D was that it was supposed to be better sealed than the 400 D model but that didn't help either.
Does anybody know if I can clean the matte glass of the viewfinder myself without too much risk?
