I've noticed a problem with my D50 when shoting towards the sun. I get a broad white stripe, ragged at the ends, stretching horizontally, centered on the sun. No, it's not a contrail.

I returned my first D50 when I saw this. The second one didn't exhibit the problem in initial tests, but it cropped up again today.

Do I need another D50, or another camera? I've never seen this when using a KM 7D, or my Sony V1 or V3. Do all D50s do this, or am I just unlucky?
