Is this normal? I was looking at the optical viewfinder at some distance (>15cm)... then I see a very obvious horizontal line inside..

but when I move closer and focus on the image that the view finder shows, the line disappears.. then just the normal [ ] shows.

funny...

hehehe... yah the one above the LCD screen... just look at it at about 5-10 cm away..

anyway heard its a common problem, even S30 and 40 has it.. later if get more dirty then bring back to canon for cleaning..
