6d 'light leak' issue?!?

This started a few weeks ago.  There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to when it occurs and when it doesn't.  Has anyone experience the same issue and know of any solutions?

 

Thanks in advance!

Potential shutter issue. Is it in the same shutter speed range?

It actually occurs at all different shutter speeds.  Photo attached was at 1/500, f/14, ISO 200.

Re: 6d 'light leak' issue?!?

I originally roughy broken shutter as well, but it doesn't do it every frame. I can shoot 10 frames in a row with no setting changes and it will do it 4 out of the 10 frames. What would explain that part?

Also is there any chance this is a leak from the viewfinder? It dies it more often in bright sunny situations versus darker situations. If it's the viewfinder is there any quick fix to that scenario?

Thanks for your input thus far.

Search for broken shutter blade and take a look at all the pictures.
