    Can it be that the 350d and 400d use mirrors instead of a proper pentaprism in the camera. (idiotic cost cutting) And they are sadly dim to view.

    Any slight misalignment of the mirror position will result in inaccuracies.

    With the pentaprism, (as in higher grade DSLRs) you do not have that problem, as the physics of the optical properties of pentaprism does not allow for misalignment or wrong positioning of the mirror.

    and most importantly, keep shooting!

    Thanks for the advice! Will work on it

    actually, not only when doing macro but most of the time i do macro lor.
    when i used the zoom lens EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 also got this "problem".

    f11-f16? Hmmm ... will try that.

    aiyooo i think i really need to brush up my skills a lot alot ... haizzz
