Just a heads up, I have owned an XSi for 2 years and just bought a T3i yesterday ... well, the focus points on the brand new T3i has three or three and half of the nine that are hazy. I am going to be exchanging it tomorrow when they open.

Good luck, I'll re-post if I learn anything not mentioned on this thread.

Hi guys, I have exactly the same problem described here. Fuzzy red AF dots. I thought it was caused due to a previous bad cleaning of the focusing screen, so I replaced it with a new one. Unfortunately, the blurry red dots are still there, so....any new findings on this? Is there anyway to recalibrate the lights withouth sending the camera to Canon service?

I am not sure about all of the cameras mentioned here but I have the 40D, 50D and 5Dc. If you change the focus screen to another type you have to set the camera's custom function to that screen. Could that setting have been accidently switched on some of these?

Just thinking out loud.

are you guys describing some sort of light leakage? e.g u have center point focus set, but some other focus points seem to get lit a little when focus is locked?

suspect it's the "superimpose screen" as the name suggest, being out of alignment. When I put mine in back to front on my 5dm2 ,I got an issue whether the AF points did not light up evenly, upon switching it around it's back to normal.

It's not normal for the AF points to be hazy, my old 300D has perfectly illuminated AF points, maybe the superimpose screen was incorrectly installed in the factory.
