When I look through the viewfinder on my camera, I am only able to see a small round hole. It looks like a black fisheye ring is around it. Is this a setting or is something wrong with he camera?

Yes, initial feeling is a problem with the body. Will the camera take a photo?
Out of curiosity, what lens do you have mounted?

I have tried 4 different lens (Canon 28-135, Canon 75-300, a Sony one and a Canon 50MM)

Is the lens opening up all the way?
03-02-2023 11:21 AM
Yes, seems to be.

Do you have a lens attached?
If there is no lens attached, there is definitely something wrong with your camera.
If there is a lens attached, there is something wrong with either the lens or the camera.

Yes, lens is attached. There is no black ring when its not attached.

Is the focus screen in place and not loose. Are you using a 3rd party APS-C lens. They will mount to your camera but they won't cover the 35mm/ FF image circle. The viewfinder WILL have vignetting (black area in all 4 corners). If you take a picture it will look like you shot through a pipe. Also the viewfinder will look this way too.
