if the display is on in the viewfinder, and you move from a dark lit area to a brighter one, the brightness of the green leds change. I never noticed that before. makes sense, though! :)

It's just good engineering design. ;)

I've never noticed that - and to tell the truth never walk around with my eye pressed into the view finder. I lower the camera when I am walking. Doesn't take long to raise it back up, and I know I am not going to trip over anything ;)

But it is interesting to hear little snippets like this - a lot of attention to detail has gone into designing this stuff.

I was fooling around with my xt in burst mode, and went from looking out my window to a dark corner in my room

Absolutely amazing.. I just checked my 30D and 5D and confirmed what roeddel said. This is one of the hallmarks of cutting edge design - they look into all the small issues, even if it's not on the spec sheet. You pay the $$ because you're being taken care of even if it's not always immediately visible.

That would mean you would have to sell the 17-55 also :)
