Hi everybody,

Since a few weeks my focus points don't light up anymore on my 5Dc when focussing. The setting for this is enabled. Today I tried with another focus screen (currently have a EES) and it also didn't work. :(

Has anybody experienced the same thing on their body?

Did you recently clean your super impose screen, if you have put it in back to front, you'll loose the red af highlights

Have you accidentally left it set in AI Servo or AI Focus? Reset everything to factory defaults and see how it works then.

The super impose screen, sits at the bottom of the pentaprism and has the af focus points etched into it. If you have never heard of it then you could not have reinstalled it incorrectly, unless you had you camera cleaned by some else who may removed it for cleaning.
