    Hey people,

    I need some help. I was cleaning my D70s today, and now when I look through the viewfinder, there's a mysterious line from the center straight down. When I look through the viewfinder when it's off, it's not there, and in my pictures, it's not there, but if i'm looking through the viewfinder and I turn the camera on, I can see the line appear.

    Any clues what this is? Something I left behind after cleaning the camera?

    Thanks.

    That's really weird. I'm guessing that's it's something to do with the AF sensors or the light meter. If it was something with the sensor...you would probably notice it in the images...and you wouldn't be able to see in in the viewfinder. If it was something on the mirror...you would be able to see it whether the camera is off or on.

    Is it still under warranty? I'd have it looked at.

    It may have always been there and you just never noticed it. My D50 has a razor thin line that runs from the center AF point marker in the viewfinder straight down, slightly to the right of center if I recall. I think it's normal.
