Man, this is heartbreaking. Got my Canon 70D
yesterday, been looking at it and playing with it all afternoon, into this evening, doing various tests, then I download my images, look at them and lo and behold....DEAD PIXELS!! A whole freaking row of them. (See Red Arrow)
Its not the monitor either, it is on the sensor! I see it in live view as well.
While my initial test results are very encouraging for ISO performance (above image is 1/60, f9.0, ISO 12800 - very clean), dead pixels DOA is very VERY disappointing! Ill have to call Canon tomorrow.
