Hi,

Mine does have a faint line right there. Mine actually has that horizontal seam/line intersecting plus a faint vertical one running up and down along the left side of that piece.

I looked closely and this is just some kind of artifact from the mold they made the plastic part with. Possibly intentional/decorative, but probably just the result of something going on in the mold making process.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Even my 5D III has a similar line positioned at the bottom of the memory card door.  My 5D II does not... but that's becaus the 5D II door goes all the way to the bottom of the camera body (it's a tall door.)

I also have this problem, my new EOS 700D. But it has no effect on anything. I am quite happier with my new machine.

I am Shayari and I love Canon.
I am using EOS 600D, 700D.

It looks like a line from the mold. Probably the parting line from the mold.
